Mr Dannawi joined Barts & The London Hospital to complete his medical qualifications in 1999. Following basic surgical training in London, he carried out his Specialist Registrar training in Trauma & Orthopaedics on the North East Thames (Royal London Rotation). Following the FRCS (Tr & Orth) exam, he undertook his spinal fellowship at the Royal National Orthopaedic Hospital, Stanmore, where he gained an excellent surgical experience across the full range of spinal procedures.

He has an academic interest, having published in peer review journals and presented at National and International meetings. He is actively involved in teaching medical students and junior doctors and is an author of a spinal chapter in an orthopaedic text book.

When seeing Mr Dannawi, patients can expect to receive a careful assessment of their condition and guidance towards an optimal management plan tailored to each individual's needs. As a spinal surgeon, Mr Dannawi performs the following procedures regularly; microdiscectomy for disc prolapse, spinal decompression for spinal stenosis, cervical discectomy with fusion/disc replacement, lumbar fusion (including posterior and intervertebral PLIF or TLIF), cement augmentation (kyphoplasty or vertebroplasty) for osteoporotic fractures or spinal tumours and stabilisation for trauma or tumours.

Personal profile:

Outside of hospitals, I enjoy spending my free time with my wife, son and daughter. I enjoy tennis, swimming, eating out with friends and try to attend the home games of my favourite Premier League team. I enjoy travelling with my family to discover new places and learn about different cultures.
