I am a Consultant Orthopaedic Hip, Knee and Trauma Surgeon at Medway Maritime Hospital NHS Foundation Trust, an Associate Teaching Hospital of The University of London. I am fellowship-trained and specialise in lower limb surgery and trauma reconstruction. My main clinical interest is hip and knee replacement and revision surgery. I also have an interest in young adult hip pathology, trauma, enhanced recovery surgery and rehabilitation.
I attained a National Training Number through an extremely competitive selection process, thereafter I completed my specialist training on the prestigious North Western Deanery Trauma & Orthopaedic Surgery Training Programme.
I accomplished my sub-specialist hip and knee arthroplasty training at the Orthopaedic and Arthritic Institute at Sunnybrook Health Sciences Centre in Toronto, Canada; one of North America's leading hospitals for musculoskeletal care, education and research. During my time there I was awarded a Fellowship Diploma from the University of Toronto. This has been further complemented by Sir John Charnley Arthroplasty fellowship at the world-renowned Wrightington Hospital - a centre of Orthopaedic excellence in the UK. My sub-specialist experience further includes National BOA Transitional Lower Limb Arthroplasty Fellowship and the Academic Exchange Programme at world renowned EndoKlinik in Germany.
I have been actively involved in teaching and training medical students and I am the clinical and educational supervisor for junior doctors at SHO & Registrar levels. I am an Advanced Trauma Life Support Instructor. I am a trainer on FRCS Exam Revision courses and on the panel of reviewers for the prestigious Bone and Joint Journal. My academic portfolio includes a Post Graduate thesis, numerous publications, research projects, high-quality audits, service improvement projects, national and local presentations and 57 training courses. Certificates of Excellence have been awarded to the best clinicians across the country from Aberdeen to Torquay and across all types of healthcare including specialists, GPs, nurses, hospices and community and mental health teams. I was the proud winner of a Certificate of Excellence in 2019. 'iwantgreatcare' (https://www.iwantgreatcare.org) is a unique way of understanding what patients really think about the treatment and care they receive. It gives all clinicians and healthcare providers the chance to listen to what patients are telling them and see how they can continue to improve. I have always kept patients in the centre of all clinical decisions and I love getting feedback from them. I really appreciate the fact that 'iwantgreatcare' gives all my patients the opportunity to feedback anonymously.
I have a safe, effective and a patient-centred approach. The guiding principle of my clinical and surgical practice is: ‘Do listen to your patients, always have them at the centre of your thinking', as this is what makes a big difference.
My research interests are: Joint preservation surgery, patient specific total knee replacement, biomaterials, platelet rich plasma and innovation in healthcare models.

I am a keen sports person and have won prizes at University level in arm wrestling and weight lifting. I enjoy playing cricket and football. My prime sources of energy are swimming, crossfit training, yoga and transcendental meditation.
I have travelled widely in Canada, India and Europe and some day would love to go on an African Safari to explore the wildlife. My favourite place is the Niagara Falls. I share a keen interest in arts and have won prizes in dramatics at both school and college levels. My favourite pastime is going on a family bike ride with my wife and two young children.
