"Working at Spire is exceptional as I have all the colleagues I need on hand for a true multi disciplinary approach to patient treatment."
I trained at Emmanuel College, Cambridge and the Royal London Hospital in and am a Consultant in Sport and Exercise Medicine.
I specialise in diagnosis, treatment and rehabilitation of acute and overuse injuries. I perform diagnostic ultrasound, ultrasound guided steroid, Hyaluronic Acid and PRP joint and soft tissue injections. I also treat long term tendinopathies with shock wave therapy (ESWT). Over the past year I has been involved in the rehabilitation of high-level athletes post COVID.
I work for the military and also have many years’ experience in elite level sport. I am one of the lead doctors for British Rowing, the Chief Medical Officer for the Oman Desert Ultra Marathon and has previously worked for several years in rugby, both for the RFU and Championship teams.
I have a strong academic background, having been an Assistant Professor at the University of Nottingham, and am currently an Honorary Senior Lecturer at Queen Mary, London and an External Examiner at the University of Leeds (Sport and Exercise Medicine) and the University of Salford (Trauma and Orthopaedics).
I have also completed a post graduate law degree and have extensive experience in Medical Law and Ethics, having been the Chair of the Research Ethics Committee at the University of Nottingham and a Board Member at QMUL.
