His practice involves all aspects of spinal surgery including trauma, deformity, infection, malignancy and degenerative conditions such as back pain and sciatica. His particular sub-speciality interests are cervical surgery, osteoporotic fractures and adult deformity. He has extensive experience in disc replacement, kyphoplasty and vertebroplasty.

Mr Lovell consults privately at Gilmour Piper as part of the multi-disciplinary team. He regularly undertakes spinal medico-legal and clinical negligence work and provides operating services privately at both The Suffolk Nuffield Hospital and The Ipswich Hospital.

Mr Lovell is actively involved with the education of trainee surgeons and other colleagues, lecturing widely and internationally on many aspects of spinal surgery. Outside of work Mr Lovell is a keen musician and is married with two daughters.
