I am a Consultant Neurosurgeon with additional fellowship training in spinal surgery and functional neurosurgery.
I graduated from Sheffield Medical School and completed my basic surgical training in Edinburgh. I then worked as a clinical research fellow in Bristol and was awarded an MD for my thesis on deep brain stimulation in patients with Parkinson’s disease.
I undertook my neurosurgical training in Bristol, Plymouth and Sheffield. I then completed a Complex Spinal Fellowship in Leeds, training with both Orthopaedic and Neurosurgical Spinal Surgeons.
I was awarded the Norman Dott Medal in 2014 for the highest mark achieved in the FRCS Neurosurgery exam. As part of this award I visited the Barrow Neurological Institute, Phoenix, Arizona on a travelling fellowship.
I currently teach surgical approaches to the spine on courses in England and Scotland. I have multiple publications in the field of spinal surgery and functional neurosurgery, including papers in peer-reviewed journals, book chapters and online learning modules. I have presented at international conferences in Europe and North America as well as invited lectures in Australia.
I work as a Consultant Neurosurgeon in Edinburgh and have a subspecialty interest in spinal surgery. I have expertise in the management of spinal degenerative disease, disc prolapse, and tumours, as well as more complex conditions such as spinal trauma and instability. My private practice mirrors my NHS practice.
