I am highly experienced in performing keyhole operations (arthroscopy), anterior cruciate and complex ligament reconstructions, cartilage repair and regeneration, knee realignment (osteotomy), revision knee ligament surgery, partial and total knee replacements and revision knee replacements.

In the last 10 years I have undertaken approximately 1,400 knee replacements, 200 partial knee replacements, 120 revision knee replacements, 400 anterior cruciate reconstructions, 2,500 other arthroscopic (keyhole) knee operations and 150 osteotomies (knee realignment).
