Mr Christian Ulbricht


I graduated in Germany in 1994 and came to the UK the following year. I trained as a neurosurgeon but have a special interest in the assessment and treatment of spinal conditions including spine surgery. Since 2007, my elective operative work has been exclusively spinal and I see more than 1000 new patients per year with spinal conditions from simple low back pain to complex spinal tumours. I do not perform any surgery on children or for scoliosis.
