After completing his PhD, Mr Patel completed his neurosurgery training in Preston and Manchester before moving to Cambridge as a Clinical Lecturer and fellow. He is  now a well established consultant neurosurgeon in Manchester who specialises in all aspects of  brain injury including head injury (concussion) brain hemorrhage (aneurysm, AVM, cavernoma). 

He has been published widely and his research in head injury management published in the Lancet has changed the way head injuries are managed in the UK.
