Background Information 
Professional profile:

I have been an Orthopaedic Consultant at Spire Wellesley Hospital and Southend University Hospital since 1998 and this has provided me with a wealth of experience of hip and knee replacements together with the management of sports injuries. 

I trained at the Royal National Orthopaedic Hospital in Stanmore, London and I was awarded the Sir Hubert Seddon Gold medal for research.  I undertook a year’s research into cartilage regeneration at the Institute of Orthopaedics, RNOH, Stanmore and Queen Mary’s University of London. This year gave me experience of some of the developing techniques for treating joint problems in younger patients. My training also involved being the Royal College of Surgeons Lower Limb Research Fellow in Detroit, USA.  I have been fortunate enough to operate with some of the world’s finest orthopaedic surgeons.  

Currently I am interested in rapid recovery programmes that aim to improve post-operative pain relief and provide a more rapid return of function following joint replacements. I am a UK member of Aquilant Research and Development Board for the development of new ideas relating to joint replacement.  I lecture orthopaedic trainees on infection control in joint replacement. 

I am a Football Association recognised Consultant and regularly treat professional sports people.

Personal profile:

I have lived in the Southend area since 1998 and appreciate the community aspects.  I enjoy cycling, clay pigeon shooting and skiing with my family. Southend’s wonderful coastline provides us with excellent dog walking opportunities and an additional form of exercise.
