Professional profile

I have been a consultant at the Queen Elizabeth Hospital, Gateshead since 2012. I was appointed as an upper limb surgeon and also take part in the trauma management. Most of my training was in the West Midlands and I particularly learned a lot at the Queen Elizabeth Hospital, Birmingham, managing war victims and poly trauma. I did my shoulder fellowship in Derby and still have strong links with the unit.

My clinical practice includes the full range of shoulder and elbow surgery as well as surgery to the hand I have a busy arthroplasty practice and perform an above average number of joint replacement every year.

I aim to provide a high quality, evidence based and personalised experience to all patients to achieve an optimal outcome.
