Background Information 
Professional profile:

Following my graduation from Manchester University in 1999, I spent 5 years gaining experience in a wide variety of surgical specialties in the greater Manchester region. In 2005 I made the move across the pennines and spent the next 6 years as a Specialist Registrar in Orthopaedics honing my skills as a surgeon in many of the local hospital in Yorkshire including 1 year at Pinderfields.

I undertook a specialist knee surgery fellowship in Sheffield in 2010 working alongside 2 of the UK’s most renowned knee surgeons. There I spent one year learning in depth surgical techniques for all aspects of knee surgery. I was then appointed as consultant with a special interest in knee surgery in October 2010. I am now focused on developing a gold standard knee service for the Mid Yorkshire area.



Personal profile:

I live locally and am married with two children.

I have always been a keen sportsman my current sporting interest is Mountain Biking across the local hills and dales.
