"Spire Bristol is a relaxed and safe place to treat children and young adults with both straightforward and more complex orthopaedic issues."

Specialises in

I specialise in general paediatric Orthopaedic conditions and I am a Consultant in paediatric tertiary referral centre for orthopaedics. My sub-specialty interest is pathology around the hip in children and young adults, in particular osteotomies around the hip. I have performed over 3,000 surgical procedures.

I have trained in and around Bristol for the last 13 years and I am now currently appointed as the Consultant Paediatric and Young Adult Orthopaedic Surgeon at the University Hospitals Bristol NHS Foundation Trust.

I specialise in osteotomies for dysplasia and all paediatric orthopaedic conditions.

I undertook my specialist fellowship training at the Royal Children's Hospital in Melbourne, where I worked alongside some world leaders in hip preservation surgery, cerebral palsy, limb reconstruction and paediatric orthopaedics.
