My Practice

 

I joined Barts & The London Hospital to complete my medical qualifications in 1999. Following

basic surgical training in London, I carried out  Specialist Registrar training in Trauma &

Orthopaedics on the North East Thames (Royal London Rotation). Following the FRCS (Tr &

Orth) exam, I undertook a spinal fellowship at the Royal National Orthopaedic Hospital, Stanmore,

where I gained an excellent surgical experience across the full range of spinal procedures. My NHS

practice is at Southend University Hospital, where I am actively involved in the development and

expansion of the spinal unit. I have an academic interest, having published in peer review journals

and presented at National and International meetings. I am also actively involved in teaching

medical students and junior doctors and wrote a spinal chapter in an orthopaedic text book.

 

 

My specialist interest is in degenerative conditions of the spine, spinal deformity, trauma, infections

and tumours of the spine. Patients can expect to receive a careful assessment of their condition and

guidance towards an optimal management plan tailored to each individual's needs. As a spinal

surgeon, I perform the following procedures when clinically indicated; microdiscectomy for disc

prolapse, spinal decompression for spinal stenosis, cervical discectomy with fusion/disc replacement,

lumbar fusion (including posterior and intervertebral PLIF or TLIF), cement augmentation

(kyphoplasty or vertebroplasty) for osteoporotic fractures or spinal tumours and stabilisation for

trauma or tumours.
