About Me

I am a Consultant in Chronic Pain and Anaesthesia. My NHS practice is at the Royal Surrey County Hospital, providing a comprehensive interventional pain service for chronic pain patients.

 

I graduated from Bristol University in 1995 before embarking on a career in anaesthesia and pain medicine and gained valuable experience in general medicine and paediatrics, including a year in Sydney Australia specialising in anaesthesia and intensive care medicine.

 

In 2001 I began specialist training in anaesthesia at the Bristol School of Anaesthesia. I undertook structured pain training at the Royal United Hospital, Bath and continued advanced pain training with a senior fellowship at the Imperial College Healthcare NHS Trust, London.

I gained a Fellowship of the Faculty of Pain Medicine of the Royal College of Anaesthetists.

 

I have an interest in neuromodulation which includes Radiofrequency Denervation of lumbar facets and sacroiliac joints. I also have an interest in cancer pain and neuropathic pain.

I am interested in teaching and regularly lecture for health professionals on chronic pain management at the University of Surrey. I have been involved with a primary care trust developing guidelines for the treatment of neuropathic pain, working closely with local GPs. I also regularly run teaching sessions for GP's and other health professionals.

I am also an anaesthetist and have regular anaesthesia sessions to maintain my skill set. I am married with three children and a dog.
