Training and experience

Mr Dan V. Plev, MD, FANCH, graduated from Mainz University and trained in Phoenix, AZ, USA and Munich, Germany where he completed his German neurosurgical training.

He was awarded an MD for his experimental immunohistological work on proliferation markers in gliomas and meningiomas. During his training he gained considerable experience in treating spinal disorders ranging from degenerative conditions to tumour work.

After moving to London, Mr Plev worked as the Spinal Fellow at the London Spine Clinic for eighteen months, greatly increasing his exposure to and experience of treating spinal conditions. Mr Plev has adopted the Clinic's philosophy of managing patients in a holistic manner, utilising the least invasive therapeutic measures when possible, to improve symptoms.

He treats pathologies of the entire spine (cervical, thoracic, lumbar), degenerative and traumatic conditions of the spine, tumours, and is now a leading surgeon in kyphoplastic cement augmentation for fractures, endoscopic discectomies and nucleoplasties and teaches regularly around the world.

Mr Plev has affiliations to The London Clinic and King's College Hospital, London. A guest lecturer at international neurosurgical and spinal conferences, he also plays an active role in faculty hands-on teaching courses and is involved in various patient support organisations, including the Artificial Disc Replacement Support Group.

What patients say about Dan Plev

I saw many 'lead' surgeons, many who wanted to test and monitor for months on end. Dan, saw me and came across with more confidence and trust. Years on, I'm glad all those who weren't sure of my spine condition, or failed to give trust or confidence in their work, led me to end up on Dan's operating table. Anyone, thrown into neuro turmoil suffers worsening invisible pain to the outside world. The operation went as Dan said it would and years on the scars have healed and life is fairly normal. Thanks Dan, your a credit to your profession. A good example of being in safe hands.
