I was trained in Liverpool at the Walton centre, after which I underwent a complex spine fellowship in Switzerland. I am now the overall surgical director for the hospital, after 10 years as neurosurgical departmental lead.
I specialise in paediatric brain tumours, spinal dysraphism, and hydrocephalus. I have been instrumental in bringing intra-operative MRI to Sheffield Children’s Hospital, allowing safer and more radical surgical resection.
