Professional profile

I have completed 16 years at the East and North Herts NHS as the lead consultant in neurophysiology and have developed the hospital’s capabilities by starting its paediatric EMG service and improving the paediatric EEG service by using video-EEG equipment.

I have been working at Spire Harpenden for the last 16 years as a Consultant Clinical Neurophysiologist and have gained immense experience in managing various complex neurological disorders, entrapment neuropathy, brachial neuritis/plexopathy, cervical – limber radiculopathy and nerve injuries.

I provide accurate diagnosis of various medical problems concerning muscle and nerve injuries using numerous tests such as single-fibre EMG, stimulated SFEMG and transcranial magnetic cortical stimulation among others. I am trained in adult, paediatric and neonatal EEG reporting and have particular expertise in diagnosing sleep-deprived epileptic disorders.

My passion is to educate other doctors about the importance of neurophysiology and to this end, I am involved with training the Neurology and Neurophysiology Specialist Registrars at the Royal Free Hospital. As an honorary lecturer of neurophysiology at Middlesex University, I teach students how to conduct neurological tests and have run courses for junior doctors from various universities including UCL and Cambridge.
