Professional profile

I undertook my medical degree at King's College London obtaining MBBS BSc (Hons) with a distinction in surgery, during this time I also obtained a degree in theology. I completed my neurosurgical training in London, working at Charing Cross Hospital, Queens Hospital and The National Hospital for neurology and neurosurgery. I sub-specialised in spinal surgery from an early stage in my training, whilst working for Professor Alan Crockard. On completion of my training I took up a consultant post at the John Radcliffe Hospital in Oxford for one year. Currently, I am the consultant clinical lead for complex spine disease for the department of neurosurgery at Hull Royal Infirmary, and the only complex spinal neurosurgeon covering Hull and East Yorkshire.

Personal Profile

I was a keen sportsman in my youth, having represented England in athletics and the south west region in football and rugby. I have also held a private pilots license and black belt in Shotokan karate, but now prefer the slightly more sedentary pursuit of climbing Scottish Munro's and the occasional marathon.
