Mr Borse is a Consultant Orthopaedic Spinal Surgeon at Leeds General Infirmary, Leeds.

Whilst undertaking his orthopaedic training in Yorkshire, Mr Borse developed a subspecialty interest in Spinal Surgery. He completed the Spine Fellowship at Queen Mary and Princess of Wales hospitals in Hong Kong under the tutelage of Professors Keith Luk and Ken Cheung, and the Complex Spine Fellowship at the Leeds General Infirmary. He also undertook a fellowship at the Rigshospitalet in Copenhagen focussing on spinal oncology.

This training has equipped Mr Borse with the skills and experience to provide the most appropriate treatments across the entire spectrum of Spinal Surgery. This includes degenerative disease, trauma, tumour and infection across the whole spine.

Mr Borse's particular clinical interests include spinal oncology, paediatric deformity, lumbar degenerative disease and minimally invasive surgery.
Mr Borse trained in medicine at the University of Leeds. He was awarded the Arnold Tunstall research fellowship and completed a Doctor of Medicine (MD) at the University of Leeds. This focused on the development of cement augmentation techniques now commonly used to treat both spinal tumours and spinal fractures.
Mr Borse has presented widely at national and international meetings and has published extensively. As a member of the British Association of Spinal Surgeons and the British Scoliosis Society, he regularly attends meetings which promote engagement and collaboration with colleagues and other professions allied to surgery.
Mr Borse strongly believes in patient-centred care and is the department lead for the Patient Care and Public Involvement Team. He offers a range of treatment options and supports patients to make informed decisions that is right for them.
