Professional profile

I am a Consultant Orthopaedic Surgeon who specialises in joint replacement surgery of the hip and knee. I am currently based at the Avon Orthopaedic Centre and have a specialist interest in revision surgery for failed hip and knee replacements. This includes failure from infection, fracture, loosening, pain and reaction to metal debris.

I went to medical school in Manchester and graduated in 1999. I am on the GMC specialist register as an Orthopaedic Consultant who specialises in both elective and trauma surgery, after completing my training in Bristol. I am fellowship trained having spent one year in the prestigious Vancouver adult lower limb joint reconstruction unit. Subsequently I have visited Munster (Germany) as an AO fellow in trauma. I was also the British hip society travelling fellow to Laussane, Switzerland.

My research interests include hip and knee replacement, hip resurfacing and hip fracture treatment. I am the editor in chief of hip international, the only journal dedicated to hip disease and I am actively involved in teaching junior doctors and medical students.
