Mr Lee is paid for half a day per month to be Spire Bushey Hospital’s orthopaedic adviser on matters relating to the spine. Duties include advising the hospital on issues relating to clinical governance, risk and best practice in relation to orthopaedic spinal services, new prostheses and reviewing the use of prostheses.
Mr Lee studied medicine at UCL Medical School in London and completed a BSc in Orthopaedics at the Royal National Orthopaedic Hospital in Stanmore (RNOH), with research into degenerative intervertebral discs. Having trained as a specialist registrar on the North West London rotation (including several years at the RNOH), he completed the Vancouver Combined Neurosurgical and Orthopaedic Spine Fellowship in Canada. In 2010 he was appointed as a consultant spine surgeon in Vancouver, and took up his current post at the RNOH in 2012. He also trained in endoscopic microdiscectomies in Bordeaux, France, and completed certified North American training in kyphoplasty and disc arthoplasty.
During his time in Vancouver, Canada, Mr Lee developed his expertise in computer navigated spine surgery (O-arm and stealth navigation) and has since performed hundreds of procedures using this novel technology. Some of Mr Lee’s cases have been published in scientific literature, one of which was awarded the Jacques DuParc award at the EFORT 2012 European scientific conference.
Mr Lee's work as a spinal surgeon at the RNOH routinely involves all areas of the spine, in particular highly complex cases that have been referred from centres around the UK - this includes degenerative, deformity, infection, tumour and trauma work. He specialises in minimally invasive fusions and decompressions with the emphasis on preservation of the paraspinal musculature and fast rehabilitation.
Mr Lee is a keen golfer and skier, loves travelling and enjoys cooking.
