Professional profile

I am an Orthopaedic Spinal Surgeon who qualified in 1984 from St Barts Hospital. I have carried out over 8,000 spinal procedures as a Consultant.

I have worked at several hospitals in London including The Marsden, Guy’s and St Thomas' Hospital, St Mary's, Charing Cross Plastics Unit, and the NEThames Neurosurgery unit. I completed my postgraduate training at King’s College Hospital and the RNOH Stanmore. I was then awarded a fellowship in Spinal Surgery at the RNS Hospital Sydney with Professor Taylor. My NHS base is Guy's Hospital since 2012, having moved from Croydon University Hospital where I worked for 20 years.

My research interests include disc replacement, bone grafting and fusion alternatives, plus minimally invasive spinal surgery. I have a supportive view on back pain and uses probes and injections for pain relief more commonly than surgery. If surgery is required I can offer all of the new techniques I practice at Guy's Hospital such as minimally invasive spinal surgery, XLIF and degenerative scoliosis surgery.
