Background Information 
Professional profile:

I work as part of an Orthopaedic partnership - Edinburgh Orthopaedic Specialists LLP - based here at the Spire Murrayfield Hospital.

My main areas of clinical practice at the Spire Murrayfield Hospital are arthroscopic surgery of the knee and ankle, ligament reconstruction of the knee and ankle and primary and revision lower limb arthroplasty.

An area of particular interest is the management of sports injuries. I am a member of the British Association of Sports and Exercise Medicine and have regular clinics at the Fitness Assessment and Sports Injury Clinic at the University of Edinburgh, as well as fortnightly sports injury clinics at St Johns Hospital in Livingston. I am one of a group of orthopaedic surgeons providing orthopaedic expertise for the Scottish Rugby Union and I am currently the orthopaedic surgeon for Scottish Institute of Sport and the Scottish Professional Football League (SPFL).

My base NHS hospital is the New Royal Infirmary in Edinburgh where, in addition to knee surgery, I am a member of the arthroplasty team. I perform both primary and revision knee and hip arthroplasty with my own practice providing much of the orthopaedic care for the Edinburgh Haemophilia Service.

Personal profile:

I became a consultant orthopaedic surgeon in 1997 and am married with three children. Educated in Edinburgh and a graduate of Edinburgh University, I played rugby for Edinburgh Schools and Edinburgh University where I gained a rugby 'Blue'. I also played at representative level for Scottish Universities and Edinburgh District. As a family we play tennis regularly and go skiing whenever possible.
