I have been a consultant in Norwich for nearly 18 years, having trained mainly in London, Norwich and Australia and enjoy a busy clinical practice of general orthopaedics and trauma surgery. The greater part of this practice consists of major joint replacement surgery and I have carried out over 4,000 hip and knee replacements. I am particularly stimulated by complex revision problems at both the hip and the knee as well as more straightforward foot and hand surgery and knee arthroscopy.
I have been the orthopaedic department’s Clinical Director, examined for the Intercollegiate Speciality Board in Orthopaedics for the Royal College of Surgeons and reviewed for a number of journals including The Journal of Bone and Joint Surgery and Hip International. I carry out Invited Reviews for the Royal College of Surgeons and Fitness to Practice Assessments on behalf of the General Medical Council.
In 2010 I was rated as one of the best hip surgeons in the country by 50 other senior hip surgeons.
After 6 years as the Honorary Treasurer and Executive Committee member of the British Hip Society, I am now the society’s Vice President. I will be President in 2015.
I am married to Jo who is currently a non-practicing GP but practicing mother to James (17), George (15) and Archie (11). We enjoy the outdoors, especially flying (I have a PPL), sailing, cycling and ball games. I am fascinated by old buildings.
