I am an experienced and internationally renowned spinal surgeon with over 32 years of medical experience, over 17 years as a qualified consultant in the North West. During my training, I received a combination of multidisciplinary and sub-specialist training from leading neurosurgeons and orthopaedic surgeons across the UK (from the south coast to the North West) in order to develop the best possible expertise and techniques.

I am very experienced in dealing with all array of spinal conditions; ranging from those relating to the neck and upper back to those in the lower back and coccyx/sacrococcygeal area and regarded as one the preeminent experts in minimally invasive (keyhole) surgery which allows for a much faster recovery time for patients together with less post-operative pain, allowing them to return to normal activities quicker than traditional open surgery would allow.

My appointments are designed to give you the best chance of getting your life back on track and recovering from any spinal issues you may be facing. Although I am an expert in all the latest surgical techniques, most of the cases I see can actually be helped without surgery. Once I have seen you, I will work with the specialist physiotherapist teams, chiropractors, pain consultants and other colleagues to formulate the best treatment plan going forward.

My NHS practice is based at Stepping Hill Hospital in Stockport, where I am the most senior spinal surgeon and clinical lead. My academic commitments to the MCh clinical training programme allow me to stay abreast of all the latest surgical advancements for complex spinal conditions.

I now regularly train other surgeons in the latest techniques the world over, from Europe to the Americas and Asia. I am regarded in medical circles as a "surgeon's surgeon" meaning other medical professionals often come to me for treatment of their spinal conditions, such is the level of trust they have in my surgical ability.

In my spare time (which I rarely get!) I enjoy family time, keeping fit, badminton and running. I have been known to hit the ski slopes occasionally with an embarrassing technique!
