Specialises in

  • Hip surgery and hip revision surgery

  • Painful or failing hip replacements

At Spire Bristol Hospital, I perform primary and revision hip replacement surgery. I have a patient-centred approach and pride myself on personal, professional and surgical attention to detail.

I am currently the departmental Hip Lead and complete over 120 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. I am actively involved in training the next generation of orthopaedic surgeons in the region.

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 surgery at Southmead Hospital, with the guidance of several prestigious local surgeons. 

I completed my FRCS (Eng) Trauma and Orthopaedic specialist examinations and was awarded my Certificate of Completion of Training (CCT) in 2015. I have been on the GMC specialist register since 2015. I work at Southmead Hospital, North Bristol NHS Trust, as a hip and trauma consultant surgeon.

I served as the Clinical Governance Lead and Audit Lead for over three years in the department of Trauma and Orthopaedics at Southmead Hospital, North Bristol NHS Trust. I remain a formal appraiser of clinical practice at Southmead Hospital.

Consultant Orthopaedic Surgeon - Southmead Hospital, Bristol.

North Bristol NHS Trust.

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.
