Virtual consultations:

I am a consultant orthopaedic surgeon specialising in spinal surgery. At Spire Leeds Hospital, I treat patients requiring spinal surgery of the lumbar spine. This may be necessitated through conditions such as lumbar back pain, disc prolapse, stenosis and spondylolithesis. I also have an interest in non-operative treatment of spinal conditions.

I trained on the West of Scotland HST programme in orthopaedics and developed an early interest in spinal surgery following a training period with Professor Gordon Waddell.

Further training in spinal surgery in Glasgow was followed by a period as national spine fellow in St James's Hospital Leeds and Leeds General Infirmary.

Please note that Mr Dunsmuir is no longer seeing new patients – his clinics are currently only for existing patients for follow up consultations.
