Specialises in

I am a Consultant Orthopaedic Surgeon specialising in several aspects of hand and wrist surgery. My areas of interest include wrist arthroscopy, rheumatoid hand reconstruction and wide awake hand surgery. I have been working as a Consultant Trauma and Orthopaedic Surgeon at Wrexham Maelor Hospital in April 2020.

I am experienced in treating a wide spectrum of hand problems such as:

  • Arthritis of the base of the thumb
  • Arthritis of the fingers, hand and wrist
  • Carpal tunnel syndrome (injections and surgery)
  • Dupuytren’s disease surgery
  • Finger, hand, and wrist fractures (including scaphoid fractures, non-unions, distal radius fractures)
  • Rheumatoid hand treatment (injections, joint replacement and tendon transfer)
  • Trigger finger/thumb (injections and surgery)
  • Ulnar nerve release (Cubital Tunnel syndrome, Guyon’s canal compression)
  • Wrist arthroscopy (Keyhole surgery)

I graduated from India in 2006 and undertook my basic surgical training in the East Midlands in 2018. I further trained as a nationally appointed hand surgery fellow (TIG fellowship) in Manchester and Birmingham. In 2019, I accomplished the rare achievement of being awarded the British and European Hand Surgery Diplomas. I won international travelling fellowships to renowned hand units such as the Mayo Clinic and the Christine Kleinert Hand Institute in the USA and the Ganga Hospitals in India which broadened my horizons in the field of hand surgery.

I am a clinical tutor to the University of Manchester affiliated British Diploma in Hand Surgery. I am also a faculty member of FRCS revision courses held in Oxford, Manchester and Mansfield.

I have keen interest in sustainable healthcare and I am presently involved in developing pathways and surgical practices with a focus on reducing the carbon footprint within the NHS.
