Mr Vishal Prasad
Mr Prasad studied at St Andrews and Manchester university. His basic surgical training was undertaken around Manchester before gaining entry into the South West Thames rotation. Throughout his training he had a strong interest in spinal surgery. He tailored his rotation towards spine and worked with most of the spinal consultants on the South West Thames rotation. He accumulated 3 years of experience in degenerative, tumour and trauma surgery and consolidated his training with a 12 month fellowship in adult and paediatric deformity, and complex revision at the Royal National Orthopaedic Hospital. He was then appointed as a locum spinal consultant at the RNOH for 16 months to continue developing his skills to the highest standard. To date (Oct 2013), as a result of his focused spinal training he has been involved in over 300 anterior and posterior scoliosis operations, 165 lumbar decompression and fusions, 130 lumbar decompressions, 50 cervical procedures and 60 trauma and tumour cases.
