Treatment restrictions due to coronavirus (COVID-19)

As part of our longstanding relationship, we are proud to be dedicating our resources to the NHS at this important time. As a result many of our treatments are currently suspended and we are reviewing all planned procedures and consultations. We are making every effort to talk to impacted patients and apologise for any inconvenience this may cause.

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.

Clinical Interests

Special Clinical Interests: Foot and ankle sports injury, Arthroscopic surgery, Ankle replacement, Arthroscopic knee surgery.
