Mr Shenouda’s accredited spinal fellowship training in the orthopaedic spinal unit in Bristol gave him a unique opportunity into the understanding of spinal pathology from both an Orthopaedic and Neurosurgical perspective.

Mr Shenouda's specialist interests are in spinal surgery and skull base surgery. He has a vast experience in the surgical and non-surgical management of a wide range of routine and complex spinal conditions including neck and back pain, cervical and lumbar disc herniation, lumbar spinal stenosis, and cervical spine degenerative diseases. He performs over 250 spinal operations annually, ranging from minimal access procedures for typically common lumbar and cervical spine disc conditions to advanced procedures for spinal trauma and tumours. He also has vast experience in motion preservation surgery of the cervical and lumbar spine and surgery of the cranio-cervical junction.

Mr. Shenouda is the chairman of the skull base MDT. He works closely with ENT, Maxillofacial surgeons and Oncologists. He treats all varieties of skull base pathologies and has particular interest in endoscopic-assisted skull base surgery.

Mr. Shenouda is the lead for the academic program for Neurosciences and the Specialist Registrar’s teaching program. He is an FRCS Neurosurgery examiner and a member of the Specialty Advisory Committee for Neurosurgery.
