Background Information 
Professional profile:

I  attained Fellowship in Spinal Surgery from RJAH, Oswestry following my higher surgical training in Trauma & Orthopaedics, based at the St George’s Medical School Hospital London. Currently I am employed as a Consultant Spinal & Orthopaedic Surgeon with an additional interest in lower limb arthroplasty, I perform various forms of Spinal Surgery excepting childhood deformities.  In the Northern Deanery as a Spinal trainer I am engaged in the training of Specialist Registrars for the last twenty years. My work is dominated by all forms of spinal trauma, degenerative conditions, tumours and problems related to the cervical spine.

I have maintained a healthy interest and experience in primary  hip and knee arthroplasty. I am a member of AO spine and  trauma faculty. Presently, I am involved in a Multicentre Furlong Evolution Hip Trial in conjunction with Imperial College, London. I have four publications in foremost peer reviewed journals on the topics of arthroplasty and spinal surgery. Over in my NHS and in the private setting I have laid out a spinal scoring process and adoption of British Spinal Registry for collating patient outcome measures.

Personal profile:

I like to think that I am an affable, no nonsense `what you see is what you get' sort of a chap. I enjoy Classical music and possibly getaway as a nominal Water colourist. I hold a Flying license for Piper 28 single engine aircraft with night and IMC rating

I am very attached to my two 1951 and 58 MGs and enjoy the membership of  MG Vintage Car Club.

With diffidence I take my Royal Enfield Motorcycle on carefully chosen Sunday mornings before the milkman is up!

I am married to a Cardiac Anaesthetist and have a daughter reading Medicine in Bristol.
