Mr Sian is an orthopaedic surgeon with sub specialist expertise in spinal surgery; he has a specific interest in the cervical spine, degenerative conditions and spinal tumours. He has been trained in less invasive techniques and commonly uses the Wiltse approach for his Lumbar surgery which leads to less soft tissue injury.
Mr Sian started his surgical training by studying at Leicester Medical School where he qualified in 1999. He then went to the Yorkshire School of Surgery for his core training and Greater Manchester for his higher surgical training. Once he obtained his CCT he did his fellowship at the prestigious Royal Orthopaedic Hospital in Birmingham. Having undergone a travelling fellowship in America, Mr Sian attended the John Hopkins University Hospital. This allowed him to be trained in many different techniques for spinal surgery. He then started as a consultant with the Royal Orthopaedic Hospital in Birmingham for approximately three years before returning back to the Pennines.
Mr Sian is regularly involved in teaching the junior doctors and spinal fellows and is a participating member of the British Spinal Registry and regularly conducts audits of his practice to improve patient services.
