Following graduation and undertaken basic surgical training I completed a recognised training programme at both registrar and senior registrar grade in Neurosurgery, which allowed me to obtain, following examination, the Fellowship in Surgical Neurology conducted by the Intercollegiate Speciality Assessment Board on behalf of the Royal Colleges of Surgeons and the Certificate of Accreditation.
I was appointed to Consultant Neurosurgeon in 1995 at Charing Cross Hospital and have 17 years experience as an NHS Consultant Neurosurgeon working at Neurosciences Unit in Charing Cross Hospital, having also been Chief of Service for the previous 5 years. I have continued to consolidate my clinical practice, developing specialist areas of surgical interest, taking an active part in continuous personal development and continuing medical education. I have gained a wide clinical and operative experience in neurosurgery, both cranial and spinal.
This has included: the management of common problems caused by degenerative conditions of the spine, such as back pain, and symptomatic intervertebral disc protrusion of the cervical, thoracic and lumbar spine as well as more complex spinal surgery for trauma , spinal tumours, and rheumatoid arthritis.
My particular area of subspecialist interest is skull base surgery, caring for patients with different problems, the most common being trigeminal neuralgia, pituitary tumours, acoustic neuroma and meningioma. The team is interdisciplinary, undertaking evolving techniques of endoscopic approaches and intraoperative neuronavigation.
I like rugby, skiing, jazz piano and classic sports cars.
