Professional profile

Availability - Murrayfield: Monday 9am-12noon, Thursday 1pm-5pm.

I undertook medical training in Oxford and later returned to do my DPhil research into the genetic basis of hand deformities. I underwent a full training in plastic surgery in Bristol, Oxford and London.

From an early stage, I concentrated on hand surgery and to this end I did a hand fellowship in the Windsor Hand Clinic. During my first consultant post as a plastic surgeon in the Canniesburn Unit of Glasgow Royal Infirmary I had a major interest in hand surgery. In 2005 I was appointed lead hand consultant of the Regional Hand Service in St John's Hospital, and since then, to my delight, my entire practice has consisted of hand and wrist surgery. In my NHS post, I covers all aspects of hand/wrist pathology and trauma. My private practice covers the same.

Throughout my career I have been extensively involved with many diverse research projects, and have published widely in peer-reviewed journals. One of my main current interests is in the development of new treatments for Dupuytren's disease, and I am currently Principal Investigator for the RIDD Trial in Edinburgh (one of only two UK centres to be involved).

Clinical Interests

Hand and wrist surgery
Orthopaedic surgery
Wrist surgery
Plastic surgery
Hand surgery
Reconstructive surgery

I accept UK-wide referrals for treatment of Dupuytren's disease, including needle fasciotomy, injection treatment and the most severe cases of complex recurrent disease. Other specialist interests include nerve entrapment conditions (including carpal tunnel syndrome), arthritis, wrist pain and tendon reconstruction.

Personal Profile

In the midst of an enjoyable surgical career in England, I had the dubious fortune of meeting and marrying a Scot. Now an honorary Edinburghian, albeit of Irish descent, I am doing my best to bring up three children in the tartan tradition. Unfortunately, old habits die hard - the house is split during the Six Nations.
