Philosophy: ‘I follow carefully the advancement in treatment of all conditions affecting the knee. I read numerous scientific journals and regularly attend both national and international meetings to keep my own techniques as up to date as possible. My job as a surgeon is to only apply surgical techniques and treatments that have been tried and tested successfully, with good results in renowned orthopaedic units worldwide. I will always try to consider more than one option for a knee problem and present these to each patient in an understandable way, in particular the likely outcome of not having an operation.’
