Background Information 
Professional profile:

I studied at The University of Leeds Medical School.  I intercalated and attained a first class honors degree in Anatomy in 1995.  After graduating from medical school I continued my basic surgical training in Liverpool and Leicester becoming a Member of the Royal College of Surgeons of England and Edinburgh.  I then undertook two years of clinical research at the University of Leicester.  My higher surgical training was completed on the South Trent rotation.  I spent one year in Bristol, subspecialising in pelvic and acetabular trauma/complex trauma and spent a further year in Perth, Western Australia, specialising in complex hip and knee arthroplasty and revision arthroplasty.

I took up my consultant post at Frenchay and the Avon Orthopaedic Centre, Southmead in Bristol as an Orthopaedic Surgeon with a special interest in orthopaedic trauma and lower limb joint replacement, in particular pelvic reconstruction, complex trauma, hip and knee replacement and revision hip surgery.  I am keen to individualise treatment for each patient and offer both operative and non-operative treatment modalities.

I am currently the Audit lead for the Orthopaedic and Trauma Department at North Bristol and I also represent the musculoskeletal department as Lead Clinician for venous throboembolism (VTE).

I am dedicated to teaching both undergraduates and postgraduate trainees and have a number of publications in peer reviewed journals.

Personal profile:

I live in Bristol with my wife and two young daughters.
