I am an Orthopaedic and Spinal Surgeon with an active NHS and private practice. I have the UK qualifications of FRCS and FRCS (Orth). I am enrolled on the GMC Specialist Register. I am Fellowship trained in Spinal Surgery. I have been involved in NHS medical management as a Clinical Director of Orthopaedics for a period of about 8 years.
I actively participate in the West Midland Regional Spinal Network and related MDT activities. I attend international medical conferences in my areas of special interest. My practice objective is to help people with back pain, sciatica or hip or knee joint problems return to their usual activities of daily living, work or recreation as soon as possible using the most appropriate methods be it operative or non-operative.
I treat patients with back pain, sciatica or spinal claudication using conservative measures, spinal injections, and neurosurgical or orthopaedic procedures as appropriate for each individual case. I treat patients with coccygeal pain with conservative measures, manipulation under anaesthesia and various types of injections a appropriate. In recalcitrant cases I sometimes offer the operation of coccygectomy to remove the offending coccyx.
