Professional profile

I work as a Consultant Spine Surgeon with my NHS practice at the Royal National Orthopaedic Hospital in Stanmore, London. I qualified from St Bartholomew’s and the Royal London Hospital Medical School in 2002. I received the Jackson Burrows and Moreton Prize for Outstanding Academic Achievement as a medical student.

I trained on the North West Thames London rotation and achieved my completion of training in 2015. Before taking up a consultant post at the RNOH I undertook further subspecialist fellowships: one year Spinal Fellowship at the Vancouver General Hospital in Canada and a one year Spinal Fellowship at the Royal Northshore Hospital in Sydney, Australia. I also worked as a fellow in Spinal Surgery in Lyon, France.

I have published in multiple peer-reviewed journals and presented at numerous national and international meetings.
