    About

    I am a Consultant Neurosurgeon with specialisation in spinal disorders. I
    offer the latest surgical and non-surgical treatments relating to all spinal
    conditions and neurotrauma.

    Most spinal problems can be managed non-operatively. However, if it
    comes to a stage that surgery is required, I prefer to offer my patients
    surgical solutions with minimally invasive and endoscopic techniques that are
    associated with faster recovery and less rate of complications. I have learnt
    these techniques from experts from many countries. I routinely collaborate and
    share my experience with colleagues in Europe and America.

    The management of some spinal problems is complex. I believe such
    problems should be discussed in multi disciplinary team meetings to provide the
    best possible care for my patients. I am fortunate to work with excellent
    colleagues in the NHS / private sector and we regularly discuss the management
    of challenging problems in order to come up with comprehensive solutions. This
    also involves bringing in the latest technology like neuro-navigation,
    neurophysiological monitoring and spinal endoscopy to make surgery safer.

    I am the director of neurosurgical training in the region. I am also an examiner
    for the final neurosurgical fellowship examination (FRCS) that is a requirement
    for a trainee to take up a consultant job in the UK. I find this extremely
    gratifying as it also helps me to keep myself updated with the latest
    developments in my specialty.

    Education

    My neurosurgical training was based in Glasgow and Sheffield. I then completed
    the prestigious Royal College of Surgeons of England’s spinal fellowship based
    at Salford Royal Hospital prior to taking up a substantive consultant job at
    the same hospital. My NHS practice is based at the Manchester Centre for
    Clinical Neurosciences at Salford Royal Hospital.
