profile

Profile

Having trained at St Thomas’s Hospital Medical School, my specialist training was in West London.

I was appointed as Consultant in Rheumatology and General Medicine at Chelsea and Westminster Hospital in 2003.

philosophy

Philosophy

Back and neck pain are common conditions and many patients and therapists often need reassurance and explanations for the problems they are experiencing.

I believe strongly in conservative treatment first and that surgery is the last resort, and that the importance of the relationship between a therapist and a surgeon that they trust is paramount. Patients need to know that they are seeing someone who they trust and who understands and specialises in their problem. Respect for the patient and experience in treating these challenging conditions, together with the back up a multidisciplinary team is essential for a modern spinal surgeon.
