Professional profile

Appointed to North Bristol NHS Trust as Consultant in trauma and Orthopaedic surgery in 1997, I developed my private practice from 1998 and founded the Sport and Orthopaedic Clinic based at the Spire (Glen) Hospital with 3 other surgeons in 2000.

My specialist interest is in sports injury particularly relating to the foot/ankle (arthroscopic surgery, fusions, bunions/lesser toes and ligament/tendon problems) and knee (arthroscopy, cartilage and ligament problems). I also have extensive experience in lower limb joint replacement (Hip, knee and ankle).

I am a member of the National societies for both knee and foot & ankle surgery being elected to the scientific committee for the later since 2009. I have been involved with developing techniques in arthroscopic surgery around the foot and ankle and regularly deal with complex trauma in this area.

I lecture nationally and internationally on the management of complex foot and ankle surgery and contribute regularly to the medical literature through research in both foot/ankle and knee problems.

This team owns 100% of the Extracorporeal Shock Wave Therapy equipment they use.
