I work as a Consultant Orthopaedic Surgeon at Royal Liverpool University Hospitals and also consult privately at Southport, Liverpool, Manchester, and London. In addition, I teach at the School of Medicine, University of Liverpool.

My mission is to provide a quality orthopaedic and spinal opinion with minimal surgical intervention to promote wellness, to relieve suffering and to restore health as humanely as it can be done at the highest value for all concerned. After years of surgical practice, I now specialise in treating people with spine, feet and other musculoskeletal problems without surgical intervention if possible.

Though more than 95% of neck and back pain is not serious, the symptoms can worry you. I handle every case of back and neck pain or any other musculoskeletal issue with a detailed consultation and a thorough examination. Following that, and if needed, I will request investigations like MRI scans.

The greatest gift I can give you is a professional opinion, kindness, love, respect, and help overcome your pain with the right exercise and lifestyle modifications. Hopefully, we can work together and avoid the need for surgical intervention.

When I give with joy, I seem to get back many times more than what I give!!
