I feel fortunate to have worked as a Consultant in Spinal Injuries and Rehabilitation Medicine since 1982 as this is an area of great interest to me..
My work as a consultant led to an involvement in a number of projects.
I have had the opportunity to work on international rehabilitation projects in Pakistan and Romania. More recently I am involved in Mauritius with the Ministry of Health and Quality of Life to improve the provision of neurological rehabilitation.
I have written scientific papers and contributed to chapters in books on the subjects of neurological rehabilitation and on tele-medicine.
Medico Legal Work
My extensive clinical experience has enabled me to prepare medico-legal reports in over 2000 cases over the last ten years.
I am committed to the use of technology in order to inform, educate and improve healthcare conditions for patients. I continue to explore the opportunities of telemedicine, as well as ways in which it can become a reality for the NHS and in Mauritius.
Patients who have sustained traumatic injuries deserve excellent rehabilitation - do they get it?
