Available through phone, WhatsApp, and email, my team and I provide 24-hour support for advice and assistance.

My Journey and Philosophy

Two decades ago, my own battle with severe back and neck pain as a trainee surgeon ignited my passion to help others. Today, as an expert in back pain and expert in neck pain, I focus on conservative treatments that include rest, medications, stretches, physiotherapy, and spinal steroid injections—proven methods to alleviate pain without surgery.

Surgical Expertise

When conservative treatments are not enough, I utilise Minimally Invasive Surgery (MIS), employing advanced techniques such as:

  • Minimally Invasive Spinal Surgery
  • Microscopic Surgery
  • Spine Navigation
  • Robotic Spine Surgery

Patient-Centred Care

As a top-rated spine surgeon in the UK, my primary goal is your mobility and understanding of your condition. Each consultation is tailored to ensure you feel valued, understood, and supported. Patients describe me as energetic, enthusiastic, and deeply committed to their care.
