I am a Consultant Orthopaedic Surgeon and I specialise in hip and knee surgery. In addition to performing primary and revision hip and knee replacements, I undertake arthroscopic (keyhole) knee surgery. I have a particular interest in computer aided knee replacement surgery required for complex deformities.

I left Leeds Teaching Hospitals Trust in April 2015 to work as a medical director for Spire Healthcare on a national basis. I continue to see insured, self-pay and NHS e-Referral Services (eRS) patients at Spire Leeds Hospital.
