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.
