Roddy completed undergraduate medical training at University of Glasgow. He undertook basic surgical training in the West of Scotland. He completed his higher Neurosurgical training at Leeds General Infirmary. He has completed a fellowship in Paediatric Neurosurgery at SickKids Hospital in Toronto.
His major interests are in paediatric neurosurgery, neuro-oncology, awake craniotomy, hydrocephalus & neuroendoscopy, neuro-traumatology and epilepsy surgery.
He has published, lectured and presented both nationally and internationally in his fields of interest.
In 2014 he made it to the semi final of the best looking neurosurgeon in the world (beaten by an Italian who had used performance enhancing plastic surgery). At the age of 16 he signed for Arsenal youth team but gave this up to pursue a career in Medicine, a decision he thoroughly regrets to this date. Outside of work he is a keen ballet dancer, loves to drive his submarine and makes a mean Victoria sponge.
