I am a consultant neurosurgeon and spinal surgeon with a particular interest in spinal degenerative disease, brain and spinal tumours, minimally invasive surgery, chronic intractable pain, and paediatric neurosurgery. I completed my higher surgical training in neurosurgery, including specialty training in spinal neurosurgery, in Manchester. Then I went to Canada and the USA to complete my subspecialty fellowships in functional neurosurgery at the University of Toronto, Canada and in paediatric neurosurgery at the University of British Columbia, Vancouver, Canada.

I took up the consultant neurosurgeon position at the University Hospital of Wales, Cardiff in 2007 and moved to Manchester in 2012. Presently I am working as a consultant neurosurgeon at Salford Royal Hospital and as a consultant paediatric neurosurgeon at Royal Manchester Children’s Hospital. I consult privately at The Wilmslow Hospital.
