I am a consultant Trauma & Orthopaedic Surgeon subspecialising in Spinal Surgery, based at the Royal Victoria, Royal Belfast Hospital for Sick Children & Musgrave Park Hospital. I specialise in treating all aspects of spinal conditions both adult and paediatric (children).I graduated from the University of Dundee Medical school in 2005 before returning to Northern Ireland. Following a competitive interview process I joined the Northern Ireland Trauma & Orthopaedic training programme, gaining fellowship of the Royal College of Surgeons, Edinburgh in 2015. I completed my Higher Surgical Training in 2016. In addition I have completed an honours degree in Anatomical Sciences and a Diploma in Medical education.
I have undertaken 2 fellowships in Spinal Surgery, the first being in Belfast in 2016/17. In 2017/18 I completed a Spinal Fellowship in Sheffield, England. This is a well-established and world-renowned spinal fellowship incorporating all aspects of both adult and paediatric spinal surgery. I worked at both the Northern General and the Sheffield Children’s Hospital under the tutelage of some of the most experienced and respected UK spinal surgeons.
Upon my return I took up my current consultant post in Belfast.
I am actively involved in teaching and research with Queens University, Belfast. I strive to improve outcomes for patients by my involvement with the British Spinal Registry.
