I specialise in a holistic approach to shoulder problems with specific interest in the latest arthroscopic techniques.

I grew up in Cardiff and went to University in Nottingham, returning to Wales for my surgical training. I completed two Fellowships in Shoulder Surgery and Sports Injury in Sydney, Australia. This trained me in the latest techniques in arthroscopic and minimally invasive surgery.

I am an active member of the British Elbow and Shoulder Society and regularly present my latest research projects.

I am Honorary Shoulder Surgeon to the Welsh Rugby Union, English Rugby Union, British and Irish Lions, all the welsh regional rugby teams, numerous English Premiership teams, several football and cricket teams.
