After qualifying in 1969 and subsequently obtaining a Masters Degree in general surgery, I worked as a Specialist General Surgeon; first in India and then in Iran until 1979. I then settled in the UK, gaining significant experience and training in orthopaedics along with two Fellowships from The Royal Colleges and a further Masters Degree from London University.
Other than general orthopaedic surgery, my special interest lies in lower limb surgery, particularly foot and ankle. This includes arthroscopies, replacement of ankle and toe joints and correction of various deformities of the foot. It gives me enormous satisfaction to see the physicial and emotional changes these procedures bring to my patients. I also practice paediatric orthopaedics.
I devote a considerable amount of my time to teaching and training undergraduate and postgraduate doctors, GP's and other paramedic staff (e.g. podiatrists and physiotherapists). I hold a Visiting Professorship at Imperial College, London and have been invited to lecture abroad (India, China, Canada, USA, New Zealand, Vietnam etc)
