After I finished my training as a general neurosurgeon in Finland, I further deepened my spinal surgery knowhow in a fellowship program in Singapore.

I am enthusiastic about neurosurgery and developing the best possible care for the patients. This professional interest I have continued after moving to New Zealand.


General neurosurgery:

  • Neuro-oncology, neuro-vascular, hydrocephalus, trauma, trigeminal neuralgia
  • General spinal surgery using minimally invasive techniques
  • Peripheral nerve decompressions
