Professional profile

I qualified from Imperial College London with a first class honours BSc in 2000 before obtaining MBBS in 2002. I completed my neurosurgical training in London and obtained membership of the Royal College of Surgeons of England (MRCS) in 2005 and Fellowship of the Royal College of Surgeons in Surgical Neurology (FRCS SN) in 2013.

My areas of interest include: degenerative cervical and lumbar spine disease (canal stenosis, disc prolapse, nerve entrapment), carpal tunnel syndrome, brain tumours (low grade glioma, malignant tumours, meningioma), head injury, trigeminal neuralgia and hemifacial spasm.

My approach to the management of brain tumours focuses on providing each patient with as much information as possible so that we can tailor a treatment to suit each individual. This requires acquisition of brain scans (such as CT and MRI scans), neurological examination and in some cases formal visual testing, neuropsychological testing and speech and language assessment. Each case is reviewed in a specialist multi-disciplinary meeting (MDT) which is attended by surgeons, neurologists, oncologists, radiologists, pathologists and so forth.

I provide surgery with patients asleep and in some cases awake surgery for patients with tumours located in high risk brain regions (eg close to speech and motor cortex).

I was awarded the Norman Dott Medal for the most outstanding performance in the Fellowship of the Royal College of Surgeons (neurosurgery) exam in 2013.

During my training, I spent 3 years as the Rupert Johnson Fellow in Neurosurgery at St George’s and was awarded a PhD from the University of London in 2013 into the role of advanced magnetic resonance imaging in the diagnosis of brain tumours which was funded by the St George’s Neurosciences Research Foundation and a Royal College of Surgeons Research Fellowship.

I was previously the chair of the British Neurosurgical Trainees Association (BNTA) and I am a member of the Society of British Neurological Surgeons. I completed a Marjorie Newsome Travelling Observership at the Barrow Neurological Institute, Phoenix in 2015.
