After completing my postgraduate training in Chennai, India, I travelled to the Republic of Ireland and the United Kingdom for further training in microneurosurgery, and spinal neurosurgery using microscopic techniques. I obtained my fellowship in Neurosurgery from Edinburgh, UK. I also work in the public health system, providing a cerebrovascular, neuro-oncology and trauma service, in addition to pursuing my area of special interest and training registrars.
Special Clinical Interests:
- Trigeminal neuralgia – percutaneous procedures and microvascular decompression
- Spinal surgery using microscopic techniques for degenerative and neoplastic disorders, including cervical disc replacements, cervical discectomy and fusion with instrumentation, lumbar microdiscectomy and decompressive laminectomy and stabilisation
- Percutaneous kyphoplasty for painful osteopaedic spinal fracture or neoplastic deposits
