I have been a patient of Mr Raman.V.Kalyan (Consultant spine surgeon) for approximately 18 months or so now and would like you to please pass on my sincere thanks for the treatment and excellent care I was given, not only whilst being an in patient in James Cook hospital, but also the after care I have received has been second to none. I cant thank Mr Kalyan and his team enough for helping me get my life back to some sort of normality. After thinking I would be in a wheelchair ,I now swim , cycle and hill walk again.


25th October 2016

I am a 51 year old man, an ex mechanic now office based and desk bound, I work in the utility sector controlling the maintenance of vehicles. Before my back problems I was quite a competitive archer and I liked to go walking in the Lake District.

I have had lower back pain and sciatica for over five and a half years, making it very difficult for me to walk for more than about five minutes/100 metres at a time. I was controlling the pain with the use of a Tens machine & prescribed pain medication, however after a time this treatment was becoming no longer effective and something had to be done.

I came to Spire Hospital Washington through a referral from my medical insurance at work.

I had such a positive experience at Spire Hospital Washington, it’s difficult to explain but I will try.

From the moment I walked through the door I knew this was something different, people wanted to help me and try to improve my life. I received a first class service from the hospital and its staff from my first initial appointment, diagnosis, treatment & after care. The staff are thoroughly professional and caring.

I cannot thank Mr Raman Kalyan enough for the surgery that he performed on me, he explained what was going to happen to me and answered all of my questions, he made me feel relaxed, knowing that I would be in safe hands.

Since I received my treatment my life is getting back to normal, I am now 100 percent pain free and can walk normally without any pain medication whatsoever, I have taken up cycling albeit slowly at first. I am getting back to walking and can now walk without pain.

I would not hesitate to recommend Spire Hospital Washington, they are simply the best that I have ever experienced.

We would like to say a huge thank you to you for the help you gave us and our daughter CB when she was experiencing severe lower back and sacral pain.

You went above and beyond our expectations when you offered to help us with our daughter’s investigations by chasing MRI results, bloods, looking at her X-rays and seeing her in your own time.

Although we are no further forward with the reason, our daughter is back to full movement and activities and hopefully we won’t experience any more problems.

Thank you again for your care and compassion

I would like to say thank you to you and all the staff at The Woodlands who looked after me. The operation has been a great success, the leg pain has completely gone and I have much more movement. The staff were all excellent I can't fault them in any way.



I felt I had to write and say a huge, “Thank You” for sorting my back pain, an ongoing situation that no amount of physio or pain killers seemed to help.

It took over my life as I couldn’t work or fulfil my role as a mum to my wonderful children.

The spinal injections were an instant success and was back to work within two days. I have been unable to work for over three months.

I am enjoying life again. Before this I was so very low and was ready to give up on the world.

Thank you so much


17th Feb 2016

After from suffering from severe back and leg pain due to a slip disc and sciatica since April 2015, I decided to go for spinal injections recommended by yourself.

Previous to the injections I would wake up numerous times in pain during the night. After suffering all day at work when I got home of an evening I took Tramadol for pain relief. I could not take the Tramadol during working hours as I was unable to drive and the tablets made me feel high.

In December I had the injections into my spine. After a couple of days I woke up in the morning to find I had no back or leg pain and I had slept through the night without waking up. I no longer have to take tramadol or any other pain relief.

I would highly recommend that anybody that was in my situation should go for the injections. I was extremely nervous about having the procedure done, but I was well looked after by all the staff at Woodlands and reassured.

I like to say a big thank you to yourself Dr Kalyan I can honestly say I'm 95% or more pain free.


Jan 2016

Thank you for the treatment I have received since January 2016 from yourself at your practice at the Spire Hospital in Washington Tyne and Wear. I was diagnosed with prolapsed disc back in February and was offered the options of conservative management or spinal injections in which this case I opted for, since I had the injections from yourself 6 weeks ago I want to tell you the difference in myself has been100% better, I have not had any pain in my back or legs, the burning sensation in my left knee has totally gone and I am able to walk and do things I took for granted before again more confidently where before I was limited to what I could do and couldn’t do. The difference since having the steroid injections has been truly superb as I thought I may never get back to myself although totally understand I must take it easy from now on.I am glad 100% I opted for them and am amazed with the difference in myself and the difference it has made. Thank you again.


5th Dec 2015.

After suffering for two years with unbearable pain in both legs and wondering about my future, I was introduced to you, Mr Kalyan.

Six weeks later and a total transformation with my mobility and with zero pain, I thank you dearly for your professionalism and dedication.

Your super staff who support you are priceless.


Primary school teacher, 19th Nov 2015

I am just writing to express the positive impact the steroid injections have had on my life.

In February, I was unable to move due to pain in my back, every movement was agony. I was regularly taking strong pain killers and was off work due to this. I had the injections in April, since then I have been back at work full time in the role as a primary school teacher, I have a lot more movement and I am able to continue with normal day to day activities.

The injections have really improved my quality of life and I am really grateful for receiving them. I am Twenty Five years old, therefore it is uncommon for me to have the back problem which I do but it is a relief to know the injections have had a superb impact.

Thank you Mr Kalyan

Dear Mr. R.V.Kalyan,

I am writing to thank you for the surgery you performed on me on 18th March 2013.

The Surgery has been a “complete success”, relieving the constant pain in my left leg. The care and attention that I received by you and your team was “fantastic” during my time in the Nuffield Hospital in Stockton.

The advice and information you gave me has helped me to make a speedy recovery.

Yours sincerely,

Ms. AP

Dear Mr. Kalyan,

For the miracle you have performed on my back, very many thank you.

You have transformed my daily life from pain on every step of weight bearing movement to No pain at all!

Breathlessness from hunched over lungs to Free and easy breathing. A suffering old going to Church at snail’s pace; ……………… to a “no bother situation”.

For all of that please accept number of immeasurable gratitude.

In this case I had absolutely no hesitation in putting the trust entirely to Mr.Kalyan. I have no idea why that was, just like it was so.

All the pre-operative investigations were undertaken thoroughly and I felt it went to great length to be sure of everything is correct. It was made very clear how I should progress with the case of my back and the consequences.

Should any of my friends or acquaintances need this operation and come to the decision that they would ‘go-ahead; I would not hesitate to suggest that they had the operation under the care of Mr.Kalyan and his team.

Yours sincerely,

Mrs GH, Retired Nurse.

From Mrs. Valerie Crossley
Middlesbrough, TS4; 20.01.2011

Dear Sir, (letter sent to Chief Executive of the hospital)

I have had an operation in December 2010.

I had Lumbar spinal stenosis and I had really severe pain in my leg which kept giving away so I kept falling, so it got that I could not go out on my own.

Mr. Kalyan gave me my life back. I am now pain free and feeling one hundred percent fitting and well.

Before my operation Mr.Kalyan explained all about the way he was going to do everything, showed me my x-rays and should I have any question he answered them all.

My care under Mr.Kalyan, before and after the operation was really excellent and I would be really thankful if you pass on to Mr.Kalyan my sincerely gratitude for everything he has done to give me my life and independence back again.

Much obliged.

- V.Crossley.

From Mrs EW
Richmond, DL10; 23rd January 2012.

Dear Sir or Madam, (letter sent to Chief Executive of the hospital)

I am writing to say how pleased I am with the procedure carried out by Mr.Kalyan at the James cook Hospital in Dec.2011.

After several years of constant pain in my low back Mr.Kalyan gave me an injection in to the affected area and since then I have been totally pain free. I have more energy as the pain was very tiring and also I feel happier as I don’t have the constant pain to deal with anymore.

I am extremely thankful to Mr.Kalyan for improving my quality of life immensely and hope to remain pain free for as long as possible.

Yours sincerely,

- Mrs.EW


Dear Mr.Kalyan,

I would like to take this opportunity to thank you and your team for the care and support that was given to me whilst I was in Hospital earlier this year with a severe back problem. Before coming into hospital I was virtually bed bound lying on my side for nearly 6 weeks as I could not move due to the excruciating pain being caused.

However when I eventually came into hospital your care and treatment was in my opinion "First Class" and the injection that I was given in my spine certainly worked wonders for me. I know that they may be a time in the future that I possibly have another injection but this treatment has taken me from being someone who could not move to being able to get out and about and get on with my life so once again I can't thank you enough.

Yours sincerely,

- VB

Mrs. HW

Dear Mr.Kalyan,

It is now nearly 4 months since you operated on my spine to relieve very severe pain by "Lumbar canal stenosis and a facet joint cyst".

I would like to thank you most sincerely for removing the causes of the dreadful pain from which I was suffering. The pain has stopped completely, and I am able to walk, sit and stand pain free.

I am very appreciative of the very intricate work which you have performed on me, and hope you will continue for a very long time to help other people to feel as I do.

With very kind regards

- HW

Testimonial & Caricature from “Mr Roger Chapman” Ripon

Please accept my thanks for your skill and constant care, following my treatment under you. You could not have been more helpful with your explanation of what was wrong and what you were going to do to put it right. It was a joy, to be able to stand upright again without pain almost immediately after my operation. I have painted a ‘Caricature’ of you holding my MRI scan, and please accept it with my thanks and I hope you enjoy it.
