About me

I am a Consultant Spinal Surgeon at University Hospitals of Leicester NHS Trust.

I completed my basic and postgraduate qualification from The Tamilnadu Dr. MGR Medical University, Chennai and was sponsored by The British Council for Higher Surgical Training in Orthopaedics in the United Kingdom. I passed my FRCS (Trauma & Orthopedics) in 2008 and followed this with Fellowship training in Spinal Surgery at Nuffield Orthopaedic Centre, Oxford, National Hospital for Neurology and Neurosurgery, London and The Centre for Spinal Studies and Surgery, Queens Medical Centre, Nottingham. I have had a comprehensive training in all aspects of spinal surgery and have chosen degenerative spinal surgery as my sub-specialty practice.

I have over three years of experience as a Consultant Spinal Surgeon and was included in the Specialist Register for Trauma & Orthopaedics in May 2014. I have a keen academic interest and am a member of Learned Societies in Spine.
