Background Information 
Professional profile:

I practised for more than eight years as a Consultant Orthopaedic Surgeon, specialising in Knee surgery at Cambridge University Hospitals NHS Trust. I now work independently and manage The Cambridge Knee Clinic.

My elective practice deals exclusively with knee surgery. I am exposed to a wide variety of knee conditions every day. My special interests involve undertaking image guided anterior cruciate ligament reconstruction. I also specialise in undertaking knee replacements in young people using uncemented implants.

My training in orthopaedics was in Oxford and Sydney. I have a Master of Surgery Thesis in Osteoarthritis. My undergraduate training was in Cambridge with clinical training in London.
