Professional profile

Availability - Murrayfield: Tuesday 8am-1pm.

I have been a Consultant Neurosurgeon in Scotland since 2002. I trained in London, Edinburgh and Cincinnati. I am involved in the management of most elective and emergency neurosurgical pathologies. Over 500 patients are treated annually under my care. The majority of the patients I treat harbour spinal pathologies. In addition, I have a major clinical involvement in the treatment of patients who harbour benign tumours in the base of the skull and cerebrovascular lesions.

My research interests currently focus on the pathophysiology of cervical spinal degeneration.

My non-clinical interests involve undergraduate teaching and postgraduate training. I am very actively involved with the Royal College of Surgeons of Edinburgh, as an Examiner, Convener of Specialists Courses and Neurosurgical Educational Lead.

I have expertise in the management of all the degenerative Spinal pathologies, which comprise the majority of my elective workload. In addition I have pursued Fellowship training in the United States in the treatment of complex Skull Base lesion and in Neurovascular Surgery. I am the Senior Surgeon in Edinburgh in the treatment of Cerebrovascular pathologies and share, with Mr Patrick Statham, the workload of complex Skull Base Tumours.
