SURGICAL OPINION

Richard is a consultant spinal surgeon working in the NHS HHFT based in Basingstoke. He has been a consultant in orthopaedic and trauma surgery since 2005. 

 

His specialist interests include Spinal Surgery and Lower Limb Arthroplasty, Spinal Surgery however his major interest lies in the lumbar spine; the majority of his surgery involves decompression, discectomy or fusion. He has an interest in the newer, less invasive techniques that are being developed in spinal surgery including semi rigid stabilisation.

 

He started a kyphoplasty service to help treat vertebral fractures from osteoporosis or due to metastases that fail to respond to conservative measures. This minimally invasive procedure allows us to treat patients who might otherwise be too frail to be treated and so far we have had excellent results. 

 

He has an interest in the management of back pain, incorporating both interventional strategies and pain management techniques to help patients. Richard works closely with the pain team consultants in the hospital and we run combined clinics for those patients who we find the most challenging. Other roles include Supervisor for Foundation Year trainees in the orthopaedic department, training and lecturing on spinal surgery, arthroplasty and trauma courses and conferences. Other interests include shooting and scuba diving.
