I am a full-time private consultant orthopaedic spinal surgeon, practising at Spire Hartswood Hospital in Brentwood, Essex. I offer private spinal surgery and various spinal injection treatments for back and neck pain.
I specialise in spinal surgery for deformity, inflammatory spinal pathologies (rheumatoid spine), degenerative conditions of the neck and lower back, spinal tumours and infections eg spinal tuberculosis. I was actively involved in setting up the Spinal Tuberculosis Unit at The Royal London Hospital, one of very few units in the UK.
Minimally invasive (keyhole) spinal surgery is a fast-developing field with many benefits for patients. Examples are the X-Stop and Wellex implants for lower back pain and balloon kyphoplasty to help patients with spinal fractures due to osteoporosis and spinal tumours. I carry out both of these procedures at Spire Hartswood Hospital. Other newer techniques that I offer include inter-spinous decompression for degenerative conditions of the lumbar spine with spinal stenosis, and cervical disc arthroplasty (neck disk replacement) for degenerative spine disorders.
I completed my higher surgical training in trauma and orthopaedics at Bart's and The Royal London Hospitals. I worked as a consultant orthopaedic and spinal surgeon at Barts and The Royal London from 2006 until late 2011.
During my training I worked as a visiting spinal fellow in Germany, the United States and India. I completed my spinal training at Norfolk & Norwich University Hospital and at the Royal National Orthopaedic Hospital in Stanmore, Middlesex.
I am the author of a spinal chapter in a medical text book, and have published and presented papers on spinal surgery at international conferences.

I live locally in Shenfield near Brentwood and, in my very limited free time, enjoy listening to music and exploring the history of ancient cultures and civilisations. Having established a successful private practice in London, my surgical practice at Spire Hartswood Hospital enables me to offer a service to Essex patients - closer to my home and theirs.Back to top
