I am a Consultant Orthopaedic Spinal Surgeon at The Walton Centre and Liverpool University Hospitals. My areas of expertise include degenerative thoracolumbar disorders, spinal deformities and fractures.

I have developed my surgical skills working along several highly regarded spinal surgeons in the UK. I have gained vast experience in performing minimally invasive spinal operations including both posterior and anterior lumbar spinal fusions and decompressions. Preserving spinal musculature and rapid rehabilitation is my constant aim. 

I specialise in orthopaedic training including spinal surgery training and was based at Trauma and Orthopaedic Hospital of Foisor, a major orthopaedics centre in the heart of Bucharest. I've completed fellowships in complex spinal surgery at Oxford University Hospitals, Royal Berkshire Hospital and Royal National Orthopaedic Hospital in Stanmore, London.
