Professional profile

I am a consultant clinical neurophysiologist and clinical epileptologist. I undertake nerve conduction studies (NCS) and electromyography (EMG) tests. Common indications for these include carpal tunnel syndrome, ulnar nerve compression across the elbow, peripheral neuropathy and cervical radiculopathies. Experienced technicians who work with me can record brain activity (EEG) and I then analyse the data. The EEG is often useful in confirming or excluding a diagnosis of epilepsy.

Nerve conduction studies involve electrical stimulation of peripheral nerves and an analysis of the recorded responses. EMG involves an analysis of muscle activity with a needle inserted into it. In an EEG recording, the electrical activity of the brain is recorded and stored in real time. This is later analysed and a report sent to the referring clinician.

In a polysomnogram, several physiological parameters are recorded, including heart rate, oxygen saturation, breathing (airflow), muscle activity and brain activity.

I see NHS, insured as well as self funding patients. I also prepare medico legal reports.
