Please note that I offer consultation only at Spire Tunbridge Wells Hospital and surgery will take place in London.

In my NHS and private practice I treat all disorders of the spine including degenerative, neoplastic, infective and traumatic disorders of the spine from the cranio-spinal junction to the sacrum. I am spinal lead for complex spine disorders and network lead for metastatic spinal cord compression.

I strongly support a multidisciplinary approach to all disorders of the spine and regularly lead MDT spine and neuro-oncology meetings. I have developed and implemented patient reported outcome measures (PROMS) for both audit and research purposes.
