"I enjoy working at Spire as staff are supportive towards each other and treat each patient as their own."
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:
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.
