Dr Akil underwent his post graduate surgical training in the United Kingdom (Edinburgh, London) and was granted a full membership of the Royal College of Surgeons of Edinburgh in 2004.

Consequently, he applies the latest state-of-the-art techniques, including minimally invasive surgery and artificial disc replacement, to the treatment of a range of spinal conditions, including disc prolapse, degenerative spinal disease, tumours, and spinal trauma.

With a special interest in diagnosis and treatment of spinal disorders, peripheral nerve pathology, and brain tumours, Dr Akil’s philosophy is that surgical management should be tailored and individualised to deliver high quality integrated medical care.
