    He completed fellowships in orthopaedic and neurosurgical spine surgery at Guy's and St Thomas' Hospital, the National Hospital for Neurology and Neurosurgery, UCLH and Great Ormond Street Hospital.

    Drawing on both his orthopaedic and neurosurgical spinal background to form a highly specialised opinion, Panagiotis works closely with physiotherapists and pain physicians, especially for patients who do not require surgery.
