During his registrarship, he updated the registrar training program to include modern imaging modalities and updated the interventional suite practices to include neurological protocols. He headed up the interventional service at Groote Schuur Hospital and, in conjunction with the neurosurgical department, launched the Neuro-interventional Program. He completed an accredited MSc from the Universities of Paris Sud and Chiang Mai in Neurovascular Diseases of the Head & Neck, with a publication describing a first-ever successful neuro-interventional approach to a traumatic vascular lesion.
