I am a Consultant Orthopaedic Spinal Surgeon. My prime interests are spinal deformity, back pain, tumours, fractures, infection and degenerative disease of the spine in both children and adults.

Both operative and non-operative treatment modalities are offered, with treatment being individualised to each patient.

I practice in Bristol NHS Trust. I obtained a first class honours degree at Worcester College, Oxford and continued my basic orthopaedic training there. My specialist spinal training was in Oxford, The Institute Calot (France) and Seattle (USA).

I see both adults and children at Spire Bristol Hospital.
