His care and attention to detail throughout the process and after the fusion operation was fantastic and reassuring.

Six months on and I am recovering well and living life almost pain free!


Patient Testimonials

These testimonials were kindly provided by patients that I have recently treated. I treat all of my patients equally, and expect them to leave the clinic encounter with a better understanding of what their problem is, and an appreciation of pros and cons of the treatment options open to them. No surgeon has a perfect operating record, and unlike what Hollywood would have you believe, unexpected unforeseen things do happen, but I will do my utmost to fix your problem.

When I was diagnosed with a serious spinal tumour, Mr Murphy quickly and clearly explained my options and preferred course of action. His approach to my problem gave me confidence that I was in very capable hands.


What if I haven’t any health insurance?

How costly is surgery if I don't have any health insurance?

If you haven’t any health insurance cover, then spinal surgery in a private hospital can be expensive. My secretary can call the hospitals and get an all-in price for any procedures that I may recommend.

Whilst spinal surgery is expensive, the cost of not being able to work to full capacity is often more financially debilitating.

Can I be seen in the public system?

Yes. I would be very happy to see you and treat you in the public health system also in Tallaght University Hospital or Naas General Hospital. An unfortunate result of decades of inadequate resourcing of both the hospital network in general, and spinal surgery specifically, is an admittedly unacceptable long waiting time both to be seen in the outpatients clinic and to be operated on. All patients are seen and operated on on the basis of clinical need.
