Mr Prasad studied at St Andrews and Manchester university. His basic surgical training was undertaken around Manchester before gaining entry into the South West Thames rotation. Throughout his training he had a strong interest in spinal surgery. He tailored his rotation towards spine and worked with most of the spinal consultants on the South West Thames rotation.
He accumulated 3 years of experience in degenerative, tumour and trauma surgery and consolidated his training with a 12 month fellowship in adult and paediatric deformity, and complex revision at the Royal National Orthopaedic Hospital. He was then appointed as a locum spinal consultant at the RNOH for 16 months to continue developing his skills to the highest standard. To date, as a result of his focused spinal training he has been involved in hundreds of anterior and posterior scoliosis operations, lumbar decompression and fusions, lumbar decompressions, cervical procedures, and trauma and tumour cases.
His experience has been very ‘hands on’ based firmly and addressing ‘the coal face’ of orthopaedic and spinal surgery. This is reflected in his clinical practice by showing excellent clinical outcomes and patient experience, with a strong foundation and emphasis towards patient care.
