Mr Jensen completed his undergraduate medical and postgraduate/higher surgical training in the North East of England (Northern Deanery).
After this, in 2013, he spent a year on an Advanced Spinal Fellowship programme in Leeds, UK. This was a combined fellowship with Orthopaedics and Neurosurgery covering all aspects of spinal surgery in children and adults, including Deformity, Degeneration, Trauma, Infection and Tumours.
Mr Jensen is currently an NHS Trauma and Orthopaedic Spine Surgeon working in Northumbria Healthcare NHS Foundation Trust, providing general trauma and specialist spinal surgery in:
- Wansbeck General Hopsital, Northumberland, UK
- North Tyneside General Hospital, Tyne and Wear, UK
- Northumbria Specialist Emergency Care Hospital, Cramlington, UK
- Hexham General Hospital, Northumberland, UK
Mr Jensen also treats private insured (BUPA, AXA/PPP, AVIVA, Healix, Vitality) and uninsured (self-funded) patients with spine conditions in Nuffield Hospital, Jesmond, Newcastle upon Tyne, UK.
Fellowship-trained in all aspects of spine surgery with Orthopaedic and Neurosurgical techniques, Mr Jensen aims to locate the source of a spinal problem and tailor a bespoke surgical solution that best suits each individual patient. The majority of his experience centres on treating trapped nerves in the neck (giving neck and arm pain) and in the lower back (giving back, buttock and leg pain), although he also has a sub-specialist interest in minimally invasive and motion-preserving spine surgery including vertebroplasty, kyphoplasty, and disc replacement surgery.

He was awarded the British Orthopaedic Association “Best of the Best” Prize and the Arthritis Research UK “Young Investigator of the Year” Prize for excellence in research in 2013.
