I graduated from the university of Tripoli (Libya) and was awarded a Bachelor of Medicine and Surgery (MBChB) with distinction in 2007.
I completed my postgraduate specialist training in the Leeds - Bradford school of anaesthesia (Yorkshire and Humber deanery). I was awarded the fellowship of the royal college of anaesthetists (FRCA) in 2015.
I undertook an accredited fellowship in pain management (Leeds) and was trained by internationally renowned experts in the fields of neuromodulation and cancer pain. I was awarded the Fellowship of the faculty of pain medicine (FFPMRCA) in 2018.
I’m currently a consultant in Anaesthesia and pain management in York teaching hospitals NHS Trust (appointed in September 2019). 
I have extensive expertise in fluoroscopic and ultrasound guided pain interventions that involve precise delivery of local anaesthetic, steroids or radiofrequency lesions to specific pain generators. My specific area of interest is neuromodulation which involves implanting minimally invasive devices that can remarkably reduce the reliance of chronic pain sufferers on opioid medication. I also help patients by referring them to other professionals (e.g. physiotherapy, psychology) who play an important role in rehabilitation and functional restoration. 

I also provide Anaesthetic and peri-operative care for patients requiring various types of surgery.
