Mr Mark Harris is a spinal surgeon who specialises in the management of children's and young persons spinal conditions. He is a consultant at Great Ormond Street Hospital for sick children and at Guys and St Thomas' and the Evelina Children's Hospital. These are internationally acclaimed specialist children's hospitals that receive tertiary referrals both nationally and internationally and provide a full range of children's services. As such Mr Harris cares for children with the most complex spinal and medical problems. This complexity in combination with his high volume practice (120+ deformity correction operations per year) means his patients benefit from his extensive experience in treating children's spinal conditions.

He graduated with BSc. Medical Science from the University of St Andrews and completed his medical training, MB ChB, at the University of Manchester in 2003. His surgical training was centred in London and he held positions in several university teaching hospitals including Chelsea and Westminster, Royal National Orthopaedic, Royal Free, Royal London, St Georges, and Guys and St Thomas' Hospitals. He trained on the South West Thames Trauma and Orthopaedic rotation during which he became a fellow of the Royal college of Surgeons. In addition to his higher surgical training he completed two years of subspecialist spinal surgical fellowships at St Georges University hospital and Great Ormond Street Hospital for sick children.

In addition to his clinical work Mr Harris is the transformation lead for the Evelina children's hospital spinal service and has successfully introduced a spinal pathway for children with spinal problems and complex medical needs. This integrates a 'one stop' preoperative assessment day with a fully multidisciplinary team review and is the gold standard in care of children's spinal deformity.

He is a trainer of future spinal surgeons and an educational supervisor to his fellows at Great Ormond Street. He is regularly invited to teach on spinal surgery courses in his specialist area of children's spinal deformity.

Mr Harris' private practice is exclusively dedicated to children's spinal conditions and he is a Consultant for The Portland Scoliosis and Spinal Surgery Centre.
