About me

Pioneer of Endoscopic Minimal Invasive Spine Surgery since 1990. By treating patients under sedation we define the sources of spinal and referred pain accurately. We have developed minimal invasive techniques to address multilevel degeneration and failed prior surgery in the neck and lower back. You do not need to suffer chronic pain, from "wear and tear" and pain deemed to be "in your head". There is usually a real source of the pain and you the patient can usually lead us to the source. We treat patients of all ages and with slipped discs, stenosis, multilevel degeneration and failed back surgery with keyhole techniques successfully over the long term.
Please note that most of the endoscopic techniques I employ are advanced and whilst supported by BUPA, they are not automatically recorded on my "Activity" listing. So the many Endoscopic Foraminoplasty, Laser Decompression, Endoscopic Cervical Discectomy, Cluneal Nerve Ablation or SpineJack procedures that I perform are not displayed.
