About me

Hello! I am a Consultant Neurosurgeon who is primarily based at the University Hospital of Wales where I have my NHS practice. As part of that role, I undertake emergency work in all aspects of adult and paediatric neurosurgery. I have Fellowship experience in Neurooncology and Complex Spinal Surgery.

My specialist interests lie in brain tumour surgery and surgery for many of the Facial Pain syndromes such as Trigeminal, Glossopharyngeal and Geniculate Neuralgias.

The challenge in facial pain lies in reaching a diagnosis, and then choosing a bespoke option for treatment, and the dilemma will be in balancing risk vs benefit. I can help with that.

Awake brain surgery for gliomas is something that is very close to my heart, and have spent time watching and learning from Prof. Hugues Duffau - a doyen of awake brain surgery for low grade glioma in Montpelier, France.

I routinely perform surgery for degenerative spinal disease of the neck and the lower back for sciatica and similar conditions.

In NHS Wales, I chaired the Neurosurgical Oncology Program and also served as the Welsh Cancer Lead for Brain and CNS. I also steer the Facial Pain Network in South and West Wales. From time to time I provide specialist advice to the Parliamentary Health Service Ombudsman.
