Functional Neurosurgery including pain and movement disorders
Pain, including dorsal root ganglion stimulation, occipital nerve stimulation and spinal cord stimulation
Training Programme Director (Neurosurgery, Oxford Deanery)
My main focus is on the higher control of the autonomic nervous system. I use Deep Brain Stimulation to both record from the brain and also stimulate brain areas whilst looking at autonomic control. This allows me to elucidate brain pathways involved in the autonomic nervous system with potential for future treatments of blood pressure related disorders, breathing and bladder dysfunction. I am also involved in a number of clinical trials related mainly to neuromodulation. These include a trial of intraventricular platelet-derived growth factor for advanced Parkinson's disease, two DBS registries, an observational cohort study of dorsal root ganglion stimulation for pain and other smaller studies. I also conduct research into non-functional neurosurgical treatments and was the chief investigator for the Evicel study (a dural sealant RCT) and a current study comparing two dural sealants. My work on the autonomic nervous system has also allowed me to research into the domains of pain (related to autonomic activity) as well as cognitive function.

Understanding activity pie charts
What does the Consultant activity pie chart show?
The Consultant activity pie charts represent the total number of elective (planned) finished consultant episodes (FCEs) and non-elective (emergency) finished consultant episodes. A finished consultant episode usually represents the care of a single patient from admission to discharge.
Please note that for Consultants who provide both adult services for patients older than 17 years and paediatric services for patients 16 years old and younger there are two outcome reports.
Understanding mortality funnel plot charts
What does the Consultant funnel plot chart show?
The Hospital Consultant mortality funnel plot represent the total number of elective (planned) finished consultant episodes (FCEs) and non-elective (emergency) finished consultant episodes. A finished consultant episode usually represents the care of a single patient from admission to discharge.
The mortality presented here is for three years: April 2014 – March 2017. Please note that for Consultant who provide both adult services for patients older than 17 years and paediatric services for patients 16 years old and younger there are two outcome reports.
The horizontal yellow line represents the national average mortality. The solid black lines above and below the yellow line are the control limits. The upper control limit represents the highest expected mortality rate. The Consultant's outcome is highlighted in magenta.
