I am an experienced Neurosurgeon who offers a wide range of specialist procedures and opinions for patients with conditions affecting the brain and spine. My sub-specialist interests within neurosurgery include neurovascular problems (brain aneurysms, arteriovenous malformations and cavernomas), assessment and treatment of degenerative spinal conditions (including myelopathy and sciatica) and Chiari malformation.

I work alongside a highly skilled team to deliver the best possible management of each individual patient, from their initial referral and throughout their treatment and aftercare.

In addition to my clinical work I enjoy providing teaching and training to both undergraduate medical students from the University of Cambridge and to post graduate doctors in training.

I am a published author in my field with papers on neurovascular and spinal topics and I am a reviewer for The British Journal of Neurosurgery.
