Mr Mofid Saif
Consultant Surgeon in Spinal Injuries

The challenges of dealing with spinal cord injury patients sparked an interest in the field when I was a junior doctor.

I carried out my initial medical training at the University of Algiers, and started my journey in surgery at Jordan University Hospital in Amman. I then took on a senior house officer post at Stoke Mandeville Hospital in the UK.I obtained the Fellowship of the Royal College of Surgeons (FRCS) and later was also awarded the Fellowship of the Royal College of Physicians (FRCP Lon). 

The challenges of dealing with spinal cord injury patients sparked an interest in the field when I was a junior doctor. I completed my training in spinal injuries and rehabilitation medicine in both Oxford and North Thames London deaneries.

At the National Spinal Injuries Centre, Stoke Mandeville I worked alongside a variety of health care professionals to develop and now lead a multidisciplinary team pain service. Furthermore, noticing that patients with Cauda Equina syndrome often are left with fragmented care, I established a Cauda Equina syndrome service. I am the leading clinician in the management of neurogenic bowel and have recently developed a special interest in paediatric and adolescent spinal cord injury. 

In view of my role as the clinical tutor in spinal injuries as well as the educational and clinical supervisor, I have attended and obtained a number of qualifications in education and teaching. I am also a member of the Postgraduate Committee at the Buckinghamshire Health Care Trust and sit on the National Recruitment Panel for the specialty.

Holistic, multidisciplinary and patient centred care are my core values for successful physical, psycho-social rehabilitation.

I studied medicine at the Government Medical College in Baroda, India and was awarded a postgraduate degree (Master of Surgery – MS) in Trauma and Orthopaedics in 1995. I worked as an Orthopaedic Consultant from 1995-2004 in India with special interest in trauma, bone infection and degenerative spine diseases. I then had the opportunity to work as an Orthopaedic Trainee at various centres in the UK, before he was awarded a National Training Number (NTN) in Rehabilitation Medicine from 2007 to 2011 at Newcastle-upon-Tyne. I worked as a Consultant in Neuro and Trauma Rehabilitation in Newcastle-upon-Tyne and then Stoke-on-Trent from 2011 to 2012, before joining as a Consultant at the Regional Spinal Cord Injuries Centre (London SCIC), Royal National Orthopaedic Hospital NHS Trust, Stanmore in June 2012. 

 My routine work at London SCIC involves specialist rehabilitation of complex traumatic and non-traumatic spinal injuries in adult patients including Cauda Equina Syndrome, management of complex spasticity, neuropathic pain, musculoskeletal interventions in these patients (Botulinum Toxin injections, Intrathecal Baclofen drug delivery, nerve blocks, joint injections) and Osteoporosis management. I have also successfully developed a regional specialist spinal rehabilitation service for Metastatic Spinal Cord Compression, at London SCIC. Holistic, multidisciplinary and patient centred care are my core values for successful physical, psycho-social and vocational rehabilitation following, complex long term neurological conditions and polytrauma.
