About me

I am a consultant Orthopaedic Spinal surgeon, with a busy NHS practice based in Morriston hospital, Swansea. The Morriston-based spinal service geographically serves the population of South West Wales, from Bridgend to Aberystwyth. I am now establishing an independent spinal service alongside my NHS practice, based at Sancta Maria hospital, Swansea.
I was brought up in Llantrisant, South Wales, through the Welsh language education system. I subsequently moved to London and graduated from St Bartholomew's hospital in 1996 with MBBS and BMedSci(Hons) degrees.
I completed my basic surgical training in 1997 in Oxford, gaining my MRCS certification. I then pursued orthopaedic specialisation, firstly in New Zealand and then Scotland, before commencing a 6 year orthopaedic training rotation back in Oxford in 2002.
In 2006, following my FRCS(Orth) examinations, I chose to subspecialise my further training purely in spinal surgery. My spinal fellowships were based in Oxford, Nottingham and Sydney, Australia, totaling two years. I returned from Sydney in 2008 to take up my first consultant position at Queens Medical Centre, Nottingham. The opportunity to work in a brand new spinal unit in Morriston hospital brought me back to my homeland of South Wales in 2011.
I have experience of delivering fully comprehensive spinal care, from cervical spine to sacrum. I offer clinical consultations, spinal expert witness services, spinal surgery, spinal injections and spinal cementing procedures along with appropriate aftercare.
I have experience of spinal problems relating to physical training having been a keen sportswoman (Women’s captain St Bartholomew’s hospital Rowing Club, member of Lea Rowing club, Women’s vice-captain St Bartholomew’s hospital Squash Club and member of Bicester Hockey club while training in Oxford).
