After my Orthopaedic training in the East of England that included three years of spianl surgery. my Spinal Fellowship in The Royal devon & Exeter hospital expanded my expertsie and surgical skills.I was appointed as a Consultant Spinal Surgeon in 2011 at The Ipswich hospital. My practice has always been 100% adult spinal surgery. I have become increasingly involved in the management & political aspects of Musculoskeletal services & spinal surgery. This has included being Chair of the Committee responsible to give clinical advice on spinal services to NHS England since April 2019.
