Background Information
Biography

Born in London, I was educated at Ilford County Grammar School for Boys and then at the Victoria University of Manchester. After gaining the Fellowship of the Royal College of Surgeons England I trained in neurosurgery in Nottingham. This was followed by a fellowship at the Necker Hospital in Paris and then at the Montefiore Hospital in New York, USA. On returning from the New York I worked as a paediatric neurosurgical fellow at the Radcliffe Infirmary in Oxford. I then took up post as a Consultant in Adult and Paediatric Neurosurgery at King's College Hospital and Guy's Hospital.  I have been working at Cromwell Hospital since 2006 operating on both adults and children.
