    Professional Profile
    I graduated from St Andrew's University with a BSc in Medical Science before completing my undergraduate medical training at Edinburgh University. After completing basic surgical training in Yorkshire and obtaining membership of the Royal College of Surgeons of Edinburgh I commenced higher surgical training in orthopaedics in the Yorkshire Deanery. During this period I was President of the British Orthopaedic Trainees Association (BOTA) attending and contributing to the Councils of a number of national surgical bodies.

    In 2006 I completed a Postgraduate Diploma in Sports & Exercise Medicine at the University of Wales Institute, Cardiff. After finishing my general orthopaedic training I gained further specialist training in arthroscopy, knee and shoulder surgery and orthopaedic sports medicine at the Royal Infirmary of Edinburgh, adidas Sports Medicine in Auckland, New Zealand and at the Orthopaedic Sports Medicine Clinic of Nova Scotia in Halifax, Canada.

    My practice in Cardiff includes the provision of orthopaedic trauma care in addition to the management of traumatic and degenerative conditions of the knee, shoulder and elbow. My particular clinical interests lie in the management of shoulder injuries, of knee instability and arthritis in the younger patient and in the repair and regeneration of the meniscal cartilages of the knee.

    Personal Profile 
    I am married with two children. Outside work my interests include sport, in particular Rugby, and I enjoy woodworking and playing music.
