Professional profile

I'm a specialist knee surgeon at University Hospitals Coventry and Warwickshire NHS Trust and Honorary Associate Professor at the University of Warwick. I treat all aspects of knee problems from sports related injuries to arthritis. My sub-specialist interest is in reconstructive knee surgery including meniscal transplantation, articular cartilage repair, osteotomy and ligament reconstruction following sporting injuries.

My training took place in Oxford and at the Royal Hospital Haslar, prior to an arthroscopy and knee surgery fellowship in Toronto, Canada in 1994-1995. Qualifying in 1982 from Charing Cross Hospital, London I spent the first part of my medical career with the Royal Marines and the Royal Navy looking after service knees and seeing active service abroad.; I joined Coventry in 2000 after 5 years as a Consultant in the armed forces.

I have a very busy sports knee surgery practice, running a knee fellowship program and am very active in my teaching and research, pioneering several new techniques.

Clinical Interests

Sports injuries of the knee, Arthritis of the knee, Knee replacement.
