Dan is a Neurosurgeon with considerable experience in spinal assessment, treatment and surgery. He is a graduate of Mainz University, trained in Phoenix, AZ, USA and completed his German neurosurgical training in Munich, Germany. Until recently he was part of the multi-disciplinary team at The London Spine Clinic and still works closely with them.
He was awarded an MD for his experimental immunohistological work on proliferation markers in gliomas and meningiomas. During his training he gained considerable experience in treating spinal disorders ranging from degenerative conditions to tumour work.
He treats pathologies of the entire spine (cervical, thoracic, lumbar), degenerative and traumatic conditions of the spine, tumours, and is now a leading surgeon in kyphoplastic cement augmentation for fractures, endoscopic discectomies and nucleoplasties and teaches regularly around the world. His next plan for treating spinal conditions is with stem cell therapies which will hopefully be available in the near future.He has adopted a stepladder approach starting with identifying the issue and treating it as conservatively as possible with physiotherapy and injectional treatment, minimally invasive procedures such as nucleoplasty and endoscopy, and can then discuss fusions and disc replacements.
His philosophy is to treat patients as he would his own family, managing patients in a holistic manner and utilising the least invasive measures when possible to improve the patients' symptoms.Diseases, Medical Tests and Treatments
