About me

Mr Crocker is a well established consultant with a large NHS as well as a private practice. He trained at Oxford University and underwent higher surgical training in London from 2005-2012. He studied malignant brain tumours and cerebral bloodflow as the McKissock Lecturer at St George's University London, from 2008-2010. He was awarded the Norman Dott medal for the most outstanding performance in the FRCS(SN) final neurosurgery exams in 2011. He visited the Barrow Neurological Institute in Arizona in 2012 as the Marjorie Newsome travelling fellow.
As a consultant he has a general neurosurgery practice with subspecialist interests in spinal surgery including revision and complex surgery as well as a large practice in spinal tumour surgery. He also has a subspecialist interest in vascular neurosurgery for aneurysms of the brain. However the majority of patients that consult for an opinion on degenerative spinal disease causing back, leg or arm pain are recommended to opt for conservative, nonsurgical treatment options and surgery is used sparingly and usually as a last resort.
Private patients are managed within a group of four leading spinal surgeons through Wimbeldon Clinics to give high levels of confidence for any complex conditions.
Mr Crocker has clinical leadership roles as chair of the regional spine MDT at St George's, Director of Neurosurgery at St George's 2013-2017, as well as lead roles for metastatic spinal cord compression. He is the Clinical Director of South London Neurosurgery under NHS England. He has a strong interest in clinical governance and a broad practice in legal matters where he undertakes work for claimants and defendants, Her Majesty's Coroner and the Police services as instructed.
