Background Information 
Professional profile:

I am a Consultant Trauma and Orthopaedic surgeon at the University Hospitals of Leicester with specialist expertise in hip and knee replacements, revision knee surgery and knee ligament reconstruction and I practice privately here at Spire Leicester Hospital

I graduated with Distinction from the University of Newcastle Upon Tyne in 2003.  I undertook my surgical training in Birmingham and Leicester before embarking on a 1 year hip/knee subspeciality fellowship, training at the world renowned Royal National Orthopaedic Hospital in Stanmore, London.  I gained experience in all aspects of hip and knee surgery under the supervision of Mr Carrington, Mr Skinner, Mr Miles and Professor Briggs.

I was also awarded the EFORT travelling fellowship enabling me to visit big orthopaedic units in Switzerland (Uniklinik Balgrist) and Germany (Endoklinik, Hamburg). This provided me with valuable surgical experience to improve the care that I provide to my patients.  

i have maintained an active interest in research, publishing on hip/knee replacements, trauma and foot/ankle topics in renowned scientific journals in the UK and USA. I am also proud to have presented the outcomes of surgeries performed in Leicester at national and international meetings.

I was appointed as a Consultant Orthopaedic Surgeon In Leicester in March 2016. I specialize in hip and knee replacements, knee revision surgery and knee joint preserving surgeries such as articular cartilage transplantation, partial knee replacements and knee osteotomies.  I am also involved in teaching medical students and trainee orthopaedic surgeons at the University Hospitals of Leicester.

Personal profile:

I enjoy running, cycling, playing tennis and football to keep fit.  I also enjoy travelling and spending time with my family.
