"Spire Hospital is where all staff strive for excellence."
I specialise in hand surgery and peripheral nerve surgery. This includes bone and soft tissue problems of the hand and wrist. My peripheral nerve practice includes brachial plexus injury as well as other conditions affecting peripheral nerves of both the upper and lower limb such as, nerve and tendon transfer for spinal cord injury / tetraplegia, spasticity after stroke or brain injury, compression neuropathy, nerve pain, thoracic outlet syndrome, nerve tumours and conditions affecting lower-limb nerves. My NHS practice also includes advice, assessment and treatment for iatrogenic nerve injury.
I completed my surgical training in London and Birmingham before completing the ATP surgery fellowship in Birmingham. I underwent subsequent fellowship training in peripheral nerve surgery in the UK, France, USA, Switzerland, Thailand, and Taiwan. I have been awarded travelling fellowships from the BOA, FESSH, BSSH and the Countess Dowager Trust. I am a member of the Royal College of Surgeons of England and the British Society for Surgery of the Hand.
My NHS work is at the department for hand and peripheral nerve surgery at the Queen Elizabeth Hospital in Birmingham. This is one of Europe's largest specialist centres and treats high numbers of trauma and military cases requiring complex limb reconstruction, and peripheral nerve injury management.
I have had a busy NHS practice for over six years taking acute referrals through GPs, and emergency departments. I also receive a number of self-referrals for peripheral nerve conditions. I am am part of an MDT through which I provide second opinions for other surgeons.
I sit on the Birmingham peripheral nerve MDT. I am the hand surgery teaching lead for the Birmingham Orthopaedic training programme. I am a tutor for the British Diploma in Hand Surgery and the Birmingham Orthopaedic training programme. I am also an editor of Orthoracle.com, an international training platform for trainee surgeons.
