Mr Chatterjee’s philosophy is that finding the cause of spinal problems and explaining them succinctly to patients is the foundation of good treatment. He believes in his patients not only understanding their back, but also being aware of all the non-surgical as well as the operative treatment options. He works with outstanding physiotherapists, osteopaths, chiropractors, naturopaths and pain management specialists in a team-based approach to find the right solution in each case. Every single patient gets the same level of attention as he would give for any member of his own family.

What patients say about Bob Chatterjee

I never thought I’d ever be able to be active with no pain in my back. I suffered for many years and it has been a fantastic opportunity for me to be treated by yourself Mr. Chatterjee. I am very grateful to you as I have my life back to normal with no pain. Thanks to you I can run, walk and go to the gym with no pain. I enjoy a lot more with my family in fun days out. I can wake up in the morning without thinking of the pain. I’ve gone back to work and drive long distance. All this which I couldn’t do before. This has been a drastic change in my life and I can’t thank you enough. It was a great pleasure meeting you and I’m happy I made the right choice by choosing you as my doctor. I will definitely be happy to recommend you as you have changed my life. Thank you again Mr. Chatterjee.
