Mr Kasis completed his basic surgical training in Guy’s/St Thomas’ and St Mary’s Hospitals in London in 2001, and then obtained a research MD degree in orthopaedics at the University of Sheffield.
Mr Kasis completed his higher orthopaedic training in Newcastle-Upon-Tyne and went on to complete a spinal fellowship in the Gold Coast Spine Unit in Australia with Dr Matthew Scott-Young.
Being competent in all approaches to the spine (operating from both the front and back) to treat a wide variety of spinal conditions, as well as current concepts of treatment of the spine, Mr Kasis strives to match the patient’s condition with the most appropriate technology available through approaches that are less invasive.
