I had been suffering with severe sciatic nerve pain for four years. Mr Budd performed spinal fusion surgery three months ago, and the pain has disappeared. I am so very grateful to him for his care and for his expertise. It was not a straightforward operation apparently, so even more thanks go to him. I would highly recommend him to any future patients …… trust him, he is brilliant !
Our family would like to sincerely thank you Mr Stokes for the excellent surgery you performed on our daughter. I have said it before and I mean it, I think you performed miracles! We are so happy and grateful for all that you have done for. You are simply a light, a healer and nothing short of the amazing! I hope you go on to help so many more.
Mr Budd operated on me 2 August at rd & e Exeter. I was so well looked after. He came to check on me personally the next day. My spinal surgery was a total success. I would highly recommend this gifted surgeon to everyone. Many thanks!
I want to thank you Mr Stokes for your skillful operating on my spine. He has already made a difference to the quality of my everyday life thank you to you and your team for all your extra care and kindness, it is much appreciated.
He explained very clearly the procedure he was going to carry out;also any risks involved and the expected outcome. I felt able to ask questions, in fact he encouraged me to do so. He is very approachable and has an open friendly manner.
Mr Stokes has performed some outstanding and remarkable surgery on me, indeed transforming me from a devastated wreck of a man, racked with pain at every movement, into a normal posture and amazingly relieving the pain which was inexplicable. I can never repay Mr Stokes and his team for the enduring life that he has given me.
What can I say about Mr Henry Budd , he listened to me and has given me my life back . Before my operation I was in constant pain and by tea time I couldn’t stand as I felt my legs were going to fall off , so I would have to go and lay down. The last week before my operation .I had-to take a chair into work and sit down for 10 mins then stand for 10 mins just to get through the day as I’m a Catering Manager for a school .Although Mr Budd could see so much on my scan / Ex-ray he couldn’t see the full extent to my back problem until he opened me up . So he to me went with his gut feeling that something more was the underlying problem . I can not thank him enough from me my partner and my two sons for giving me my life back . Thank you
Thank you for saving my legs, my back, my life.
To Mr Stokes and the team thank you for the work on my back. Your work and what you do is life changing!
Mr Budd has changed my life. Having not been able to walk properly or have any quality of life for a year and a half, I went to see Mr Budd and he listened to me and believed me. He knows his job extremely well and I felt like I was in excellent hands. I didn’t feel like just another patient with Mr Budd, I felt like he genuinely loves his job and wants to help people and cares. He had lots of time for me, I never felt like my appointments were rushed and I never left the room until I was happy. He came round to see me a few times while i was in hospital before and after my operation and even after he had had a long day of operating all day, he still had time to come and see me and have a chat to make sure I was ok. I would highly recommend Mr Budd. Thankyou for giving me my life back 🙂
Thank you Mr Stokes for all that you and your team did for our son. He is doing so well and making a good recovery. We cannot thank you enough for your professional attention and personal care. He is a lucky young man to have been a your good hands.
I received fantastic care. Mr Budd was extremely skilled, competent and compassionate, going above and beyond what was required in my case, to ensure I felt reassured. Nothing was too much trouble … I am a healthcare professional myself and couldn’t think of anything else that I would have wished for in a surgeon. He was outstanding!
Mr Stokes you have an able to me to be an upright person again. Thank you is such a simple phrase that we say every day, but one which I cannot convey to you enough. I am finally getting back to normal. Your care and compassion has been a major factor in this, along with your surgical skills, I would not choose any other surgeon to join me on my spinal journey. So thank you for all you have done for me and for my future
Having been diagnosed with lumbar spinal stenosis by my local NHS hospital, and put on a long waiting-list, my sciatic pain had worsened so much that I couldn’t wait for treatment any longer. That’s when I decided to go private. The Nuffield in Exeter is a specialist orthopaedic centre, and I chose Mr Budd as my surgeon. What a wise choice! From the first, he was attentive, listening to my queries and he explained the procedure clearly and concisely. I was totally confident that I could trust his expertise and judgement. My spinal decompression operation took place in mid-March and, within a day, it was clear that it had been successful. My sciatica has vanished, and I am making a good recovery. I can heartily recommend Mr Budd to other patients in a similar circumstance.
I wanted to give you extra special thanks Mr Stokes for your thoroughness with all the extra trouble needed from my surgery. I felt reassured that you were leaving no stone unturned and I’m so very grateful. I appreciate that years of dedication of gone into building up such skill. Enormous thanks for a life being regained
Mr Budd listened to me in the first instance, and didn’t try to belittle my symptoms. He was quick to diagnose my disc protrusion and carried out very successful surgery.
Mr Budd reassured me that surgery was the best option for me. He listened to my concerns and put me at ease.I had spinal surgery to my lower back 8 weeks ago. I now am pain free with no loss of sensation to my legs for the first time in years.. I can’t thank Mr Budd and his team enough Brilliant!

Eternally grateful to Mr Budd for giving me a new lease of life. Highly recommended and a big thank you from me!
