Mr Dashti is a Consultant Spinal Surgeon specialising in spinal problems for adults and children.

He attended the University of Dundee Medical School and was awarded the prestigious ‘Heller Prize, Most Likely to be Best All-Round Doctor’ by the University. He continued my postgraduate orthopaedic training in Dundee.

Mr Dashti undertook his spinal surgery fellowship in Manchester followed by an international fellowship at  University of Missouri, Columbia, USA under Dr Gaines. He gained further experience of the complex surgical techniques practiced by leading American surgeons.

He was appointed as a Spinal Consultant at Royal Manchester Children’s Hospital and Salford Royal Infirmary in the Complex Spine Unit, which is the referral centre for the Greater Manchester area, and one of the largest units of its kind.

He worked in the Royal Manchester Children’s Hospital which involves dealing with complex spine surgery in children, especially children with neuromuscular disorders.  He undertakes spinal clinics at Leeds General Infirmary due to his expertise in this field. He is also the Governance Lead for the spinal unit at Royal Manchester Children’s Hospital.

Mr Dashti's adult practice at Salford encompasses all aspects of spinal surgery including traumatic injuries, infection, tumour and degenerative changes in the whole of the spine, which includes microdiscectomy, decompressions and fusion of the spine as required.

He enjoys reading widely in all subjects to find new ideas and concepts which could be incorporated in the management and treatment in his practice, from behavioural and evolutionary psychology to physics.
