Professional profile

I am a consultant orthopaedic surgeon offering private knee surgery, back surgery and general orthopaedic surgery.

I have a specialist interest in reconstructive knee surgery, including personalised and standard knee replacement surgery, injuries of the knee such as anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) ruptures, as well as surgery on the meniscus (cartilage) and to provide a new articular surface for damaged areas of the knee joint.

I have extensive experience in all aspects of knee surgery including complex reconstructions and post-traumatic injury treatments. I work closely with specialist physiotherapists to ensure the best possible recovery following surgery. I offer assessment of low back pain and associated conditions such as sciatica, and undertake hip replacement surgery using well-proven implants.

My orthopaedic training was South West Thames based at St George's teaching hospital. During my time training, I gained a wide experience of all areas of orthopaedic surgery before concentrating on knee and spinal surgery.

I gained the Higher Orthopaedic Fellowship in 1995, and in the same year was appointed orthopaedic consultant at Basildon Hospital. I am a member of the British Orthopaedic Association and have held a senior clinical management position at a private hospital as well as being Director of Orthopaedics at Basildon Hospital for over five years.
