He became a Diplomate of the European College of Veterinary Neurology in 2006 before moving to the UK to run the neurology and neurosurgery service at the Queen’s Veterinary School Hospital, University of Cambridge until 2008. Following this, he took a research position in neuroscience at the University of Cambridge, where he obtained a PhD in neuroscience in 2012.

His research focuses on treatments for spinal cord injury in dogs, including transplantation of cells for spinal cord regeneration and repair, clinical trials for new therapies, and neuromodulation for incontinence control.

Nicolas offers referral consultations in neurology and neurosurgery and a range of neurosurgeries (including state-of-the-art spinal fixation implants) for treatment of disc related problems (disc herniation, wobbler disease, lumbo-sacral disease), spinal fractures and sub-luxations, congenital anomalies of the spine, cancers of the spinal cord and brain diseases (brain tumours, malformation, trauma). He is also the only neurosurgeon in the UK to offer sacral neuroprosthesis implantation for the treatment of neurogenic incontinence. Alongside medicine/ICU/anaesthesia specialists, he will run a feline acromegaly clinic and will offer treatment by pituitary surgery in cats and dogs.
