Specialises in

I trained in Cape Town, South Africa, qualified as an Orthopaedic Surgeon there in 2011, and moved to Bristol in 2012 to undertake specialist fellowship training. I undertook three full years of fellowship training - in knee surgery, hip surgery and Major Trauma Centre trauma surgery at Southmead Hospital, with the guidance of several prestigious local surgeons. I completed my FRCS (Eng) Trauma & Orthopaedic specialist examinations and was awarded my Certificate of Completion of Training (CCT) in 2015. I am on the GMC specialist register since 2015. I work at Southmead Hospital, North Bristol NHS Trust, as a hip, knee and trauma consultant surgeon.

I perform hip and knee primary and revision joint replacement surgery. I also perform knee arthroscopic procedures including ACL reconstructions, and joint injections.

I perform over 100 joint replacements a year in addition to a full trauma service at Southmead Hospital. I use implants with excellent survivorship verified by the National Joint Registry (NJR) and Orthopaedic Data Panel Evaluation (ODEP) databases. My surgical techniques and outcomes are published online through the NJR consultant profile page. I am actively involved in training the next generation of orthopaedic surgeons in the region.

I am the Clinical Governance Lead and Audit Lead for the department of Trauma & Orthopaedics at Southmead Hospital, North Bristol NHS Trust. I am an active colleague appraiser of clinical practice at Southmead Hospital.

I have a patient-centered approach and pride myself on personal, professional and surgical attention to detail.

Personal profile

Having moved to Bristol in 2012 for a one-year fellowship, I found myself drawn to the beautiful city of Bristol and surrounding countryside, not to mention the lovely wife, family and two cats that followed. To balance a busy work schedule I enjoy several sports, barbeques, walks and good old-fashioned quality time with the family.
