- Paediatric neurology
I am a Consultant Pediatric Neurologist and my NHS practice is based at Addenbrooke’s Hospital, Cambridge. My experience in Paediatrics spans 15 years in the UK.
I have trained in general pediatrics in East Anglia, London and in Wales. Subsequently I trained to be a specialist Pediatric Neurologist in Addenbrooke’s Hospital and at Great Ormond Street Hospital, London. I have worked as a consultant at the tertiary referral neurology centre at Southampton prior to my appointment at Addenbrooke’s Hospital.
I manage/treat children ( 0-16 years) in various neurological conditions such as headaches, stroke, epilepsy, developmental delay, cerebral palsy and neuromuscular problems. I am well versed in the diagnostic modalities including MRI and CT scans, metabolic tests, skin and muscle biopsy. I teach in headache and epilepsy courses via the British Pediatric Neurology Association.
I have successfully completed my general pediatric training and obtained certificate of completion from the Royal College of Pediatric and Child Health, London.
