About Dr James Greenwood
I am currently employed as a spinal APP at the National Hospital for Neurology and Neurosurgery, it is an enviable position. My role includes requesting complex imaging, listing patients for surgical procedures, and assisting with non operative management. It gives me a fantastic opportunity to collaborate with experts from a wide range of disciplines and a group of patients who are suffering from a broad spectrum of neurosurgical disorders.
I recently completed an NIHR doctoral fellowship. This involved utilising mixed methods to develop and evaluate a rehabilitation programme for use after lumbar fusion surgery. This process has had a profound impact on my view of healthcare and particularly rehabilitation.
