General neurology; peripheral nerve disorders such as peripheral neuropathy due to diabetes, carpal tunnel syndrome, Guillain-Barré (or its chronic correlate, CIDP); neurological infections including HIV-related neurological problems



Headaches, dizziness and blackouts are the most common presenting symptoms in general neurology and need to be investigated thoroughly. After a detailed history and neurological examination, which may take up to an hour, a differential diagnosis can usually be made. In the last decade tremendous strides have been made in the treatment of common neurological conditions such as stroke, epilepsy, Parkinson’s disease, multiple sclerosis, and dementia. These include thrombolysis for acute stroke, newer medications for multiple sclerosis and deep brain surgery for Parkinson’s disease and other movement disorders. I work closely with neurophysiologists (who perform nerve conduction tests and EEG), neuroradiologists (who report on MRI and CT scans) neurosurgeons and other specialists including neurophysiotherapists, occupational therapists and specialist nurses. A patient’s journey back to better health can be long and hard, but it is intensely rewarding to help them get there.


I am a General Neurologist, which means I treat patients presenting with common neurological symptoms. I have a specialist interest in peripheral nerve disorders and neurological infections including those related to HIV infection.
