Mr Rabi Khazim


Consultant Spine Surgeon

Specialty: Spinal

Location: Essex

Professional Profile

My orthopaedic residency training was undertaken fully in the University of Toronto, Canada and completed in November 1994. I have a further two and a half years of comprehensive sub-speciality training in spinal surgery in the spinal units of the Toronto Western Hospital and Nottingham’s Queen’s Medical Centre.

Since November 1996, my elective NHS and private practice work has focused on spinal disorders. This included complex spinal surgical experience at a consultant level in the spinal units of Queen’s Medical Centre, Nottingham, Leicester Royal Infirmary and Frimley Park Hospital.

Independently as a consultant spinal surgeon, since April 2000, in both my NHS and private practice in Southend University Hospital and Spire Wellesley Hospital, I have performed a few thousand major spinal procedures and several thousand spinal injections or minor procedures.

My practice is currently for private and “Choose and Book” NHS patients. I welcome appropriate patients wishing to refer and pay for treatment themselves without the need for a GP letter of referral.
