About me

I am a Consultant Spinal Surgeon with an NHS base at the Oxford University Hospitals NHS Trust. I treat all spinal conditions with a special interest in deformity surgery, particularly looking at the correction of sagittal imbalance in adults and scoliosis in adolescencts, and tumour surgery of the spine. I was born and trained in Switzerland with rotations in the US and fellowship training in the UK and held consultant positions in Switzerland and the UK, where I was appointed in Oxford. My research at the University of Oxford focuses on clinical trials in spine surgery and on molecular therapies for regenerating musculo-skelettal tissues.
I also obtained a Ph.D. in bioengineering and biotechnology from the Swiss Federal Institute of Technology in Lausanne (EPFL) and based on my earlier work and third-party funding, I am looking to set up research on second-generation protein therapeutics and bioactive polymeric materials for regeneration of hyaline tissues and bone. My long-term research interest is to develop and translate molecular therapies into clinical surgical practice.

Areas:
- Surgery of the degenerative spine with a particular interest in the cervical spine
- Minimally-invasive spine surgery for lumbar spinal fusions and discectomies
- Spinal deformity and scoliosis in adults and adolescents
- Surgery for tumors/metastasis in the spine
