- Movement disorders
I have been a consultant neurologist since 2001. I studied medicine at Oxford University and University College London medical school, graduating with honours in medicine, surgery, pathology and Clinical Pharmacology and Therapeutics. My neurology specialist training was completed in London with a short period at UCLA in Los Angeles.
I am interested in all aspects of clinical neurology from treatment of headache to the management of complex neurological disorders.
My subspecialist interests include : Parkinson's disease and movement disorders, headache, use of botulinum toxin to treat migraine and post stroke spasticity, and neurorehabilitation.
