I am an experienced Consultant Spinal Surgeon based in Nottingham. I specialise in the whole spectrum of spinal problems including sciatica, back or neck pain, scoliosis, trauma, infections and tumour surgery. The majority of my practice now focuses on the more complex cases or those requiring a second opinion and revision surgery.

I have been trained in centres of spinal surgical excellence in the UK and North America. My specialist training has been in both spinal orthopaedic and spinal neurosurgery. In Nottingham, I lead the largest teaching institute of spinal surgery in Europe.
