Background Information 
Professional profile:

I am a Consultant Spinal Surgeon at The Robert Jones and Agnes Hunt Orthopaedic hospital in Oswestry since May 2014. Previously I was a Consultant Orthopaedic Surgeon with Special interest in Spinal surgery at Warrington and Halton hospital NHS Foundation Trust and Consultant Spinal Surgeon at Alder hey Children’s hospital, Liverpool since January 2013.

I have trained in India and have undergone my Trauma and Orthopaedic training as a Specialist Registrar on the Mersey rotation. I have trained in spinal surgery with fellowships at The Robert Jones and Agnes Hunt Orthopaedic hospital in Oswestry & Alder hey hospital, and at Hope hospital, Salford & Royal Manchester Children’s hospital.

Personal profile:

I have a holistic outlook towards life and this reflects in my clinical practice.

My passion outside of medicine is in understanding the similarity between science, mythology and philosophy. I have been invited to lecture on my understanding of these sciences.

The videos are open to public on YouTube.  (shashank.chitgopkar)

I enjoy playing cricket in the local league.
