Professional profile

I am a Consultant Orthopaedic and Trauma Surgeon at Addenbrooke's Hospital, Cambridge with a subspecialist interest in hip and knee surgery. I specialise in general orthopaedic surgery with a specific interest in lower limb joint replacements (arthroplasty), complex joint replacements, revision arthroplasty, metastases to the lower limbs, hip surgery, knee surgery, lower limb surgery, sports injuries, knee arthroscopies, computer navigated surgery.

I am a high volume arthroplasty surgeon having performed over 1,000 hip replacements, 700 knee replacements and carried out over 750 knee arthroscopies. I currently perform over 200 arthroplasty procedures a year across my NHS and Private Practice.

I am also an Associate Lecturer to the University of Cambridge with a particular interest in undergraduate teaching. I completed my specialist training on the NE Thames Training program. During my training program I completed an MD on the clinical and histopathological review of patients who had received cartilage transplants in the knee. I achieved the FRCS Tr and Orth in 2008. I gained additional fellowship experience in Vancouver Canada, San Diego USA, Royal National Orthopaedic Hospital, Stanmore and an AO Fellowship in trauma in Berlin. During my fellowships I gained considerable experience in patients with complex joint problems particularly in revision arthroplasty. I recently completed the prestigious Rothman-Ranawatt travelling fellowship in North America. I also have a keen interest in sport and I am a pitch side medic to Cambridge Rugby.

I am the Lead for the Management of Lower limb metastases at Addenbrookes Hospital. I was also recently the lead for the management of Hip Fractures at Addenbrookes Hospital.
