Professional profile

I am a UK fellowship trained consultant spinal surgeon. My practice involves the care of all forms of spinal medicine and surgery. I use a multi-disciplinary approach working with physiotherapy, rehabilitation, pain management and radiology specialists. I perform spinal surgery to include all forms of appropriate spinal intervention from the neck to the low back.

Major interests lie in scoliosis, tumour, trauma and degenerative spinal surgery. I care for children through to the elderly with spinal problems. Privately, I operate exclusively at Spire Southampton Hospital.

Personal Profile

I was born in Teddington, Middlesex in 1964 and attended school in New Malden, Surrey. On leaving school I initially trained as registered general nurse at Frimley Park Hospital before undertaking my first degree at the University of Surrey. I then spent a short time as a Nursing Officer in the British Army. I resigned my commission in 1994 to train in medicine and qualified from University of Southampton with Honours in 1998. My basic orthopaedic training was on the Wessex rotation and I completed a fellowship in spinal surgery at the Norfolk and Norwich University Hospital prior to taking up post as Consultant Adult and Paediatric Spinal Surgeon.

I am married with 4 children, 2 boys and 2 girls. I enjoy watching football and spending time with my family.
