I am a Consultant Orthopaedic Surgeon who specialises in lower limb problems.
I also have a special interest in enhanced recovery after surgery (ERAS). This means that the patients I operate on receive the most up to date anaesthetic techniques to control pain and are able to mobilise quickly and safely after surgery. This results in a lower rate of problems post-operatively and enables patients to be discharged home earlier.
I trained as a doctor and surgeon in Leeds, Yorkshire, and the North East of England. I then undertook specialist training in hip and knee replacement at the Golden Jubilee National Hospital in Glasgow. Here I trained specifically to perform navigated (computer aided) knee replacement.
I am Clinical Lead Consultant at Hull and East Yorkshire NHS Hospital Trust and lead for ERAS in the trust.
I have published several papers, contributed to two best selling orthopaedic textbooks and lectured at national meetings on enhanced recovery.
I treat arthritis, soft tissue and sports injuries of the hip and knee.
