Professional profile

I specialise in all aspects of knee surgery and his practice only sees patients with knee problems. I run the Knee Injury Service at Frenchay Hospital and provides a similar service in his private practice. A full range of options for patients with cartilage problems is provided, including cartilage regeneration and transplant techniques and re-aligning osteotomies. Half (Unicompartmental) and total knee replacements are available for the treatment of advanced arthritis.

I lead the revision knee replacement service for North Bristol NHS Trust and complex knee replacement and revision knee replacements are also available in my private practice.

I receive a high proportion of referrals for complex knee problems from Cheltenham, Bath, Yeovil, Taunton, Weston and South Wales.

I trained in orthopaedics in Bristol before gaining additional experience in knee surgery in Australia, the USA, Canada and Scandanavia.

I maintains an active interest in all areas of knee research and education and developed the knee replacement education classes at the Avon Orthopaedic Centre. I am the adviser on knee problems and pathways to the Bristol PCT MATS and South Gloucestershire PCT CATS programmes. I am a former recipient of the British Knee Society Travelling Fellowship and the Knee Society President's Medal. I advise on knee replacement and knee technologies to the Medicine Devices Agency and NICE.
