I am a Consultant Neurosurgeon specialising in spinal disorders. I offer the latest surgical and non-surgical treatments relating to all spinal conditions and neurotrauma.

Most spinal problems can be managed non-operatively. However, if it comes to a stage that surgery is required, I prefer to offer my patients surgical solutions with minimally invasive and endoscopic techniques that are associated with faster recovery and less rate of complications. I have learnt these techniques from experts across the world. I routinely collaborate and share my experience with colleagues in Europe and America.

The management of some spinal problems are complex. I believe such problems should be discussed in multidisciplinary team meetings to provide the best possible care for my patients. I am fortunate to work with excellent colleagues in both the NHS and private sector, and we regularly discuss the management of challenging problems in order to come up with comprehensive solutions. This also involves bringing in the latest technology like neuro-navigation, neurophysiological monitoring and spinal endoscopy to make surgery safer.

I am the director of neurosurgical training in the region. I am also an examiner for the final neurosurgical fellowship examination (FRCS) that is a requirement for a trainee to take up a consultant job in the UK. I find this extremely gratifying as it also helps me to keep myself updated with the latest developments in my specialty.
