Personal profile

I am a consultant radiologist with specialist expertise in spinal imaging and performing back pain related procedures (epidural/ facet joint and nerve root injections as well as percutaneous vertebroplasty). Please see www.thespinegroup.co.uk for further details. In addition I also perform a wide range of interventional procedures including vascular angioplasty and stenting as well as embolisation of fibroids and varicoceles. I also have an interest in cross sectional imaging including computed tomography, MRI and ultrasound examinations.

I underwent specialist training at Oxford before undertaking fellowship training at Sheffield Vascular Institute and at University of British Columbia in Vancouver, Canada. I have a strong academic interest with over 40 peer reviewed articles in international radiology journals. I have also authored a radiology textbook covering the field of interventional radiology. I am actively involved in undergraduate and postgraduate medical education in my capacity as Honorary Senior Clinical Lecturer at the University of Birmingham.
