Professional profile

My work as a Consultant Neurologist covers all aspects of neurology. I run general clinics seeing patients with headache, neuropathy, epilepsy, multiple sclerosis and other neurological conditions. My movement disorder clinic attracts patients with Parkinson disease and other neurological conditions affecting mobility. I provide treatment with botulinum toxin for dystonia (a range of movement disorders that cause muscle spasms and contractions). My practice focuses on consultations and pharmacological treatment. I perform diagnostic lumbar punctures.

I am a member of Parkinson Disease Steering committee at Norfolk and Norwich University Hospital (NNUH) which supervises the treatment and care of patient with Parkinson disease in our region. I am a member of the Drugs, Therapeutics and Medicines Management Committee at NNUH as well.

In addition to my clinical work, I am also proud to be an honorary lecturer at the University of East Anglia. I am a clinical supervisor to junior doctors and registrars at the Norfolk Norwich University Hospital.

I am a honorary consultant neurologist at James Paget Hospital in Great Yarmouth running a botulinum toxin clinic once a month there. I am active in the research activities of our neurology department participating in trials with Parkinson disease. I participate in clinical research performed at Norfolk and Norwich University Hospital (Parkinson disease).

I undertook my undergraduate training at University Palacky at Olomouc, Czech Republic and qualified as a doctor at 1995. I continued my postgraduate training in liaison with the Charles University in Prague, Czech Republic, and the Institute of Postgradute Education. I passed my first Board Examination on Neurology in 1998 and the second Board Examination in 2009 and qualified as Consultant Neurologist. My primary interest in neurology are movement disorders including Parkinson disease, Parkinson plus syndromes, tremor, dystonia, Huntington disease and similar conditions and cognitive neurology.
