Mrs Anne Mitchener qualified in Psychology at University College London in 1979. This was later followed by a PhD in drug abuse, awarded in 1983 at the Institute of Psychiatry.
Her academic career was to continue; she subsequently qualified in medicine from Cambridge (Downing College and New Addenbrooke's Hospital) in 1986, later receiving neurosurgical training in London, Glasgow and Edinburgh.
Her extensive medical expertise was further recognised when she was added to the principle list as a Consultant Neurosurgeon in 2002.
In terms of her clinical practice, Mrs Mitchener has widespread experience that spans across Europe. She was a Consultant Neurosurgeon in Norway from 2002 to 2006, before later moving to Charing Cross and Kings College Hospital until 2009, when she became fully independent. To this day she continues her work with a large NHS practice based in Surrey.
Her neurosurgical interest is in treating all spinal issues, including new and minimally invasive techniques with and without instrumentation and second opinions offered.
On a personal level, Mrs Mitchener is married with two children. Notably she is a polyglot and is able to speak French, Spanish and Norwegian. Beyond her medial interests, her personal interests include travel, sport, opera and ballet.
