Professional profile

I am a consultant orthopaedic surgeon at Bristol Royal Infirmary and the Avon Orthopaedic Centre. I graduated from the University of Manchester in 1994. I have been a Senior House Officer in Bristol and studied for Higher Surgical Training in Wales. Whilst in Wales I developed an interest in basic science research and was awarded a national grant, which enabled me to pursue full-time research and obtained a MD.

I underwent Fellowship Training in Hand Surgery at internationally renowned units in Nottingham and Sydney Hospitals. During this time I developed skills in Wrist Arthroscopy, Rheumatoid Surgery, Wrist and Small Joint Arthroplasty and Microvascular Surgery.

I am committed to teaching and run the Bristol Hand Course for Orthopaedic Trainees. I also lecture on a number of National Hand Surgery Courses.
