I am a consultant in trauma and orthopaedic surgery, with a specialist interest in complex hip and knee disorders in children and adults. My practice encompasses the entire spectrum of lower limb problems, ranging from sports injuries requiring arthroscopic (‘keyhole’) reconstruction, to hip and knee arthroplasty (replacement) for degenerative diseases.

I consult with around 3,000 patients each year, and undertake approximately 500 operations. In my arthroplasty practice, I perform primary and revision (‘redo’) hip and knee replacements, using cemented and cementless prostheses. I offer both unicompartmental (‘partial’) and total joint arthroplasty depending upon the patients’ needs. In my sports injuries practice, I perform arthroscopic ligament reconstruction, cartilage and meniscal repair, and realignment procedures. My trauma practice includes the management of more challenging problems such as multiligament injuries, and periprosthetic fractures.

Training of health professionals, both in the UK and abroad, forms a large part of my responsibilities. This ranges from teaching family doctors to perform injections, to training orthopaedic surgeons in the techniques of knee and hip surgery. I am a member of the Court of Examiners for the Royal College of Surgeons of England, and also a member of the Specialty Training Committee in Trauma and Orthopaedic Surgery.

I studied Medicine at the University of Cardiff in 1995, and completed my general surgical training in South Wales. I then completed a two year clinical research fellowship at the WHO Collaborating Centre for Metabolic Bone Diseases, leading to the degree of Doctor of Medicine (MD) from the University of Sheffield.

I completed my specialist Higher Surgical Training in Trauma and Orthopaedic Surgery in the Oxford and Leicester regions, and was awarded the Certificate of Completion of training (CCT). Thereafter, I undertook a one-year fellowship in hip and knee arthroplasty at the Calvary Hospital in Canberra, Australia, and a six-month fellowship in knee surgery and sports injuries at the Holland Orthopaedic and Arthritic Centre (Sunnybrook Health Sciences Centre) in Toronto, Canada. I was appointed as a consultant in trauma and orthopaedic surgery in 2009.

I enjoy outdoor activities such as mountain biking and snowboarding. Both my wife and I are interested in travel and often visit Europe and Asia. I have backpacked across North America and we have explored New Zealand by campervan and have toured South Africa and Australia. As part of my training as a surgeon, we had the opportunity of living and working in Australia for a year, and Canada for six months.
