I am a Spinal Surgeon in Manchester specialising in spinal surgery, neck and low back pain and sciatica.

I qualified from the prestigious All India Institute of Medical Sciences in 1998. I then went on to complete my orthopaedic higher surgical training in Wales, followed by an accredited spinal fellowship at University Hospital Wales.

I have published many research papers and presented my work at numerous national and international conferences. Knowledge has always been my passion and to further my knowledge on spinal conditions, I am currently finishing my European Spine Diploma course.
