List of doctors and specialists in the United Kingdom

Doctors and specialists are listed here for one of three reasons: they were recommended by a coccyx pain patient; they are the authors of a relevant medical paper; or because they have informed coccyx.org that they have success in treating coccyx pain. The reason for listing each one is given. If you would like to recommend a doctor or specialist, please let me know.

If there is no suitable specialist listed who is near to you, you could try to find one by writing to specialists near you.
