Background Information 
Professional profile:

Having completed my orthopaedic training in Wales, I gained training in spinal surgery in Cardiff and Nottingham. I was appointed as a consultant in 2003.

My practice involves treating all aspects of spinal pathology ie low back pain, neck pain, spinal injuries, spinal tumours and scoliosis surgery. And associated conditions related to spinal problems ie sacroiliac joint and coccygeal pain.

I have expertise in newer techniques such as minimally invasive procedures for
back pain. We have pioneered minimally invasive surgery for sacroiliac joint stabilisation.

Personal profile:

Outside work I spend most of my time with my family. I am interested in sports and play racquet sports and cricket. I enjoy listening to music in my spare time.
