Background Information 
Professional profile:

Since my first orthopaedic job at the West Hill Hospital in Dartford, I have furthered my training in various aspects of orthopaedic surgery, finishing with two fellowships in Australia in paediatric orthopaedics and limb reconstruction. I hold an MSc in sports and exercise medicine from Nottingham University. I currently work as an orthopaedic consultant at Hinchingbrooke hospital.

For my hip and knee replacements, I use implants that have atleast a 15 year follow up and a good track record. I offer minimally invasive surgery of the hip using an anterior inter muscular approach which does not leave any weakness in the muscles surrounding the hip, resulting into a smaller scar, less post operative pain and less post operative weakness. I use computer navigation for all my knee replacements to get consistent accurate results.

In line with my NHS practice, I also offer private consultations for paediatric patients and surgery for limb lengthening and deformity corrections.

Following my masters degree in sports medicine, I have looked after national and international sportsmen and women for various injuries offering consultations and surgery if necessary for sports related injuries.

I offer surgery of the hand such as needle fasciotomy for Dupuytrens contractures, a minimally invasive surgery for contractures in the hand which gives instant results and can be carried out under local anaesthetic.

I have extensive teaching experience, being a faculty member for the international AO foundation. I have a number of national and international publications, and have also written chapters in text books, contributed to contents of websites for national educational websites for medical professionals and am a faculty member for training courses for juniors.

An academic achievement that I am proud of is a Gold Medal in Orthopedics awarded for the MS orthopedics exit exam in Trauma and Orthopedics.
Personal profile:

Having participated in various sporting activities such as hockey, basketball, volleyball and shooting at regional and national levels, I am now involved in supporting our children in their activities. While our daughter likes swimming and gymnastics, our son spends most of his time kayaking, participating in short races and also marathon racing from Devizes in Wiltshire to Westminster in London a distance of 125 miles.

With our two children we live in Houghton a quite village in Cambridgeshire and my current sporting activity involves a game of golf with friends.
