I have been qualified as a Consultant Spinal Surgeon for over 12 years. Prior to that, I received training from leading orthopaedic surgeons and neurosurgeons in order to develop the best possible expertise.
My initial orthopaedic training took place in the Wessex region, after which I undertook specialist training as a fellow in the spinal unit at Southampton University Hospital. I went on to be awarded the national spinal fellowship from the Yorkshire Deanery. The combination of multidisciplinary and sub-specialist training has allowed me to develop my prac tice to a higher degree than would otherwise be possible.
I am now confidently trained to deal with an array of spinal conditions; ranging from those relating to the neck and upper back to those in the lower back and coccyx/sacrococcygeal area.
I regularly train surgeons in different parts of the world in these areas and several others, often introducing them to the latest techniques and developments. The advancements in minimally invasive (keyhole) surgery such as microdiscectomies, spinal and sacroiliac joint fusions, XLIF, vertebroplasty and kyphoplasty have been astonishing. They allow for a much faster recovery time for patients, together with less pain after surgery and a quicker return to normal activities. Technological improvements mean that these procedures are also extremely safe and have a track record of proven results. I offer all of them as part of my practice.
My NHS practice is based at Stepping Hill Hospital in Stockport, where I am the most senior spinal surgeon and clinical lead. Over the last decade, I have been at the forefront of bringing the latest advancements in treatment and technology to the Trust. I am also an honorary consultant at Leeds Spinal Neurosurgical Unit where I keep abreast with surgical advancements for complex spinal conditions.
