I have been a Consultant Orthopaedic Hand Surgeon since November 2000 and my NHS practice is at Addenbrooke's Hospital, Cambridge.
I studied medicine at St Thomas' Hospital, London followed by General Surgical Training in Oxford and Gloucester, Plastic Surgery Training back at St Thomas' Hospital and then Higher Specialist Training in Orthopaedic Surgery based at Addenbrooke's Hospital.
At Oxford I was a member of Trinity College and undertook research into limb development and wound healing, being awarded an MSc by research.
I later undertook a Fellowship in Hand Surgery in Oxford and was awarded the European Diploma in Hand Surgery in Amsterdam in 2002. This is a qualification held by a relatively small number of Hand Surgeons in the UK and Europe.
I live in Cambridge. Spare time is spent with my family and, in addition to my wife's and children's interests, I am a keen skier. I take part annually in an international amateur ski race and I am Medical Adviser to 'British Ski and Snowboard', the National Governing Body for Snowsports.
