I’m a fellowship trained Paediatric Orthopaedic Surgeon. I undertake all categories of paediatric orthopaedic work except for spinal deformities. My sub specialist interest is related to limb deformity and skeletal dysplasias.
My Medical school training was in the West Indies. I subsequently migrated to the UK to undertake specialist training in 1997. I was elected a Fellow of the Royal College of Surgeons of Edinburgh in 1999. I undertook my Orthopaedic specialist training in Merseyside. My Paediatric Orthopaedic specialisation came from spending 14 months at Alder Hey Children Hospital working with world renowned surgeons.
During this time, I successfully completed the subspecialty examination in Trauma and Orthopaedic. This was followed with a further 6 month National Paediatric Orthopaedic fellowship at the Robert Jones Agnes Hunt Orthopaedic Hospital. I then undertook a 1 year international fellowship at the Royal Children’s Hospital Melbourne, Australia.
I was appointed as a Consultant Paediatric Orthopaedic Surgeon in January 2008 and took up the post in July 2008.
My NHS practise consists of 50% General Paediatric Orthopaedics and 50% Special interest (Limb Reconstruction Surgery).
My main research interests relate to the prognostic indicators for poor outcome following joint infections and the role of gait lab analysis in limb reconstruction surgery.
