Professional profile

I am a Consultant Senior Lecturer in Orthopaedics with specialist interests and training in hip and knee replacement and hip arthroscopy. I studied at the University of Bristol and Cardiff University obtaining my medical degree (MB ChB), a bachelor degree (BSc) in Pathology and a doctorate (PhD) in Orthopaedics from Bristol and a master’s degree (MSc) in Orthopaedic Engineering from Cardiff. My higher clinical specialist training took place in London, Bristol and Vancouver.

I have also completed a number of specialist fellowships (the highest level of surgical training) to enhance my surgical skills, including two of the most highly regarded, internationally recognised and prestigious fellowships in hip and knee replacement surgery: the Vancouver Fellowship in adult joint replacement and the Bristol Fellowship in advanced hip and knee surgery. During the course of my training, I also completed Research Fellowships with the British Hip Society (the McMinn Scholarship) and Royal College of Surgeon (research Fellowship) and Travelling Fellowships with the British Orthopaedic Association and the Royal College of Surgeons.

I specialise in the non-surgical and surgical management of disorders of the hip and knee. I have particular interests in the treatment of young adult hip disorders and the treatment of arthritis of the hip and the knee. I takes a holistic approach to the care of my patients with the aim of ensuring they are relieved of pain and restored to the level of function they wish to achieve. I take the time to ensure patients are aware of the various treatment options open to them and help my patients to choose the best treatment options for them with their goals and expectations at the heart of the care I deliver.

Part of my current research involves analysis of the National Joint Registry of England, Wales and Northern Ireland, the largest of its kind in the world. This helps me to select the best implants and surgery for my patients backed by strong evidence base and long term follow up.

I am an enthusiastic trainer and teacher and I lead the Orthopaedic teaching elements for Bristol Medical School and North Bristol NHS Trust Academy. I find being actively involved in teaching the next generation of doctors and surgeons to both stimulating and rewarding.

Personal Profile

I have called Bristol my home for over 20 years. I enjoy making the most of what the city and region have to offer with my wife, Gemma who runs a Bristol based travel business, and our two dogs. We are keen travellers and undertook an epic sea/road trip to make sure our two black Labradors got to enjoy our time in Vancouver on Fellowship too. We are winter sports enthusiasts and I have been a keen skier and snowboarder since I was young.
