I have published more than 30 papers in clinical and scientific journals.  These have been mainly on the aetiology and management of trigeminal nerve injuries.  The branches of the trigeminal nerve, including the lingual and inferior alveolar nerves, are the sensory nerves that give sensation to the face and jaws and are often injured during dental and surgical procedures as well as in facial trauma.


I have presented more than 50 papers, each with a published abstract, at national or international scientific meetings
