Professional profile

I am a specialist joint replacement consultant surgeon and have worked at Spire Bristol Hospital and The Avon Orthopaedic Centre, Southmead Hospital since 2012. I have dedicated my entire career to orthopaedic surgery and research since graduating from Manchester University in 1999.

I subsequently trained in joint replacement surgery in both Bristol and Vancouver and now perform over 250 joint replacements a year. I specialise in both primary hip and knee replacements, including partial medial knee replacements and revision surgery of both hip and knee replacements. I am also able to offer metastatic bone cancer surgery of the hip and knee.

During my career, I have published many articles on orthopaedic disease and treatments and am regularly invited to speak at international medical conferences. I am currently the editor of the prestigious medical journal Hip International.

I pride myself on my warm bedside manner and ability to offer patient-centred joint replacement surgery and follow-up hospital care in partnership with consultant anaesthetist Dr Steve Tolchard. Together, we have performed in excess of 1700 joint replacements since 2012.
