Background Information 
Professional profile:

I have a broad experience in the management of orthopaedic pathology as a result of training in Bristol and Sheffield. I am therefore able to offer consultation in many areas of orthopaedic care, including sports injury.

I have experience in total joint replacement of the hip, knee and ankle and in arthroscopic treatment of knee and ankle conditions. Following advanced training in Bristol, Brisbane and Dallas, I also have specific interest in disorders of the foot and ankle. I have extensive experience in the assessment and management of acute ankle and foot injuries, as well as the treatment of arthritis and deformities of the foot, such as hallux valgus (bunions).

My research interests include the management of ankle arthritis and the treatment of cartilage injuries to the ankle.

Personal profile:

My wife and I take pride in our two young sons, and when time and commitments allow, I also enjoy golf, football and reading.
