Background Information 
Professional profile:

I grew up in Cardiff and went to University in Nottingham, returing to Wales for my surgical training. I completed 2 Fellowships in Shoulder Surgery and Sports Injury in Sydney, Australia. This trained me in the latest techniques in arthroscopic and minimally invasive surgery.

I am an active member of the British Elbow & Shoulder Society and regularly present my latest research projects. I act as Honorary Surgeon to the Welsh Rugby Union and Cardiff Blues.

Personal profile:

Outside of work most of my time is spent with my wife and 2 daughters. I enjoy keeping myself fit and watching rugby.
