John Sutcliffe trained as an undergraduate in Edinburgh, gaining the year prize for systematic surgery and qualifying in 1983. His early medical post-graduate training was also in Edinburgh, after qualification, taking in a large number of specialties including plastic, orthopaedic and paediatric surgery before focusing on neurosurgery.
He undertook neurosurgical training posts in Sheffield and London and developed an extensive experience of treating spinal conditions ranging from tumours and trauma to the commoner degenerative spine. He was appointed as a consultant neurosurgeon in 1993 and for the last five years has concentrated exclusively in the management of patients with spinal disorders.
Having resigned from the NHS in 2000, he has been able to develop the multi-disciplinary team at the London Spine Clinic, who manage patients jointly. He runs a regular teaching and training program within the Clinic, in both surgical and non-surgical aspects of spine care.
