I am a senior consultant orthopaedic surgeon based in St Helens and Knowsley Teaching Hospitals NHS trust.

I have been the Clinical Director of Trauma and Orthopaedic Surgery in the Trust from 2013 to 2020.

I specialise in foot and ankle pathologies, as well as knee surgery, trauma surgery and osteoarthritis. I trained in Barcelona, Spain where I am from and completed my postgraduate studies at Imperial College in London and Manchester.


My surgery uses advanced modern techniques for the management of bunions, arthritis and deformities of the foot and ankle, knee and I routinely treats sports injuries with particular interest in ankle ligament injuries, tendo-achilles and plantar-fasciitis pathologies.



I hold an Honorary Senior Lecturer post in Liverpool University and my NHS contract is at St Helens & Knowsley Teaching Hospitals NHS Trust. Additionally,  I am a partner in St Helens Orthopaedic Group.



I am involved in developing and running academic programs for medical students, doctors and surgeons in training. I am also a member of the UK Intercollegiate Specialty Board in Trauma & Orthopaedic Surgery and member of the British Orthopaedic Society ( BOA), British Foot and Ankle Society (BOFAS) and British Association for Surgery of the Knee(BASK).

Throughout my career I have lectured nationally and internationally on "Foot & Ankle, Knee" pathologies, and I have published widely in medical journals.


I strongly believe in offering a complete multidisciplinary 'foot, ankle and knee" treatment and I work with a dedicated team of rheumatologists, diabetologists, physiotherapists, podiatrists and orthotists at Fairfield Independent Hospital in St Helens.
