Professional profile

I am currently a full-time consultant in trauma and orthopaedic surgery at Addenbrooke's, Cambridge University Hospital NHS Foundation Trust. I also consult and operate at the Spire Cambridge Lea and Cambridge Nuffield Hospitals. In addition, I am a trauma and orthopaedic surgeon in the Royal Army Medical Corps (V), having served in both Iraq and Afghanistan.

I trained in the Oswestry Orthopaedic Programme during which time I was awarded the FRCS (Orth) and subsequent CCT in trauma and orthopaedic surgery. My clinical and research interests centre on hip and knee arthroplasty, pelvic and acetabular surgery, lower limb trauma reconstructive surgery, outcome measures following joint replacement and orthopaedic training and education.

I am a specialist hip and knee surgeon with interests in pelvic and acetabular surgery and lower limb trauma reconstructive surgery.

I have undertaken a one-year SAC approved AO Fellowship in Sunnybrook Health Sciences Centre Toronto, a world-renowned academic institution, working with many eminent surgeons including Professor Marvin Tile, Dr Joseph Schatzker, Professor Hans Kreder and Professor Alan Gross. During my time there I was awarded a fellowship diploma from the University of Toronto. Throughout my orthopaedic training, I have had extensive exposure to complex primary and revision hip/knee arthroplasty, as well as high energy polytrauma, in both the civilian and military setting. In particular, I have extensive fellowship-level experience in the management of pelvic and acetabular fractures, periprosthetic fractures and lower limb arthroplasty. I have attended international training courses and specialist meetings in Canada, USA and throughout Europe.

I have been involved in educational instruction throughout my professional career, from medical student teaching to lecturing at international meetings. In addition, to being an OSCE examiner for the University of Toronto during my fellowship year, I currently teach orthopaedic registrars and other junior doctors as well as undergraduate medial students at Cambridge University. I am a ALS and Battlefield ATLS instructor, having taught these courses since 2003.

With an ongoing research portfolio covering basic science and clinical practice, I have collaborated in studies with university departments and orthopaedic companies. I currently have over 80 peer reviewed publications and presentations, both at international and national conferences, on a wide range of arthroplasty and trauma reconstructive topics. I am a reviewer for the British Journal of Bone and Joint Surgery and wishes to continue my interest in academic orthopaedics in the future.
