About me

I am the lead Spinal Surgeon in a busy spinal unit of 4 consultants. My fellowship training was in Nottingham where I developed a particular interest in degenerative disease of the spine, spinal biomechanics and their relationship to painful conditions of the spine. Having developed skills in interbody fusion I naturally moved into disc replacement surgery and flexible stabilisation techniques. I have performed lumbar disc replacement for 17 years and cervical disc replacement for 11 years.We are in the process of publishing the results of longterm follow up on both Lumbar and Cervical Disc Replacement, having presented the results at International meetings. I have been involved in teaching these procedures world wide and am involved in the continual development of the prostheses and techniques. I have also been involved in the development of posterior dynamic stabilisation procedures, both interspinous devices and pedicle based systems.
I have over 10 years experience of Lateral Interbody Fusion (XLIF) in deformity, infection and revision surgery. I am a member of SOLAS.
More recently I have renewed my interest in sacroiliac joint pain and it's treatment, including surgery. I have extensive experience of iFuse which is the current preferred method of minimally invasive SI Joint fusion.
I have an interest in Coccydinia and am a listed surgeon on Coccyx.org
