I graduated in Medicine in 1990 from the University of Newcastle upon Tyne and then undertook my Basic Surgical Training in Centres in the UK and Australia, including a year spent teaching Anatomy at the Medical School in Leeds. I was then appointed as a Specialist Registrar on the 6 year Yorkshire Regional Training Programme in Trauma and Orthopaedic Surgery which I completed in 2001 before undertaking a year of Fellowship training in Reconstructive Knee Surgery in the UK and in Melbourne, Australia.
I was appointed as a Consultant in Trauma and Orthopaedic Surgery with a special interest in Knee Surgery in 2003, including private practice at Methley Park Hospital since 2007. I have since developed a practice specialising in Sports Injuries and treatment of knee instability and arthritis. This includes arthroscopic knee surgery, reconstruction of the cruciate and collateral ligaments, osteotomies around the knee, partial and total knee replacement, revision knee replacement and treatment of patellofemoral instability and pain.
As a consultant at the MidYorkshire Hospitals NHS trust, I also participate in the trauma 'on call' rota, carrying out a wide range of trauma procedures and also specialising in reconstruction of traumatic injuries around the knee joint including distal femoral and tibial plateau fractures.
I have published a wide range of articles in the field of trauma and orthopaedics, more recently concentrating on fractures and soft tissue injuries around the knee.
