I’m a dual fellowship trained Consultant Trauma and Orthopaedic Surgeon at Addenbrookes, Cambridge University Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust.

I specialise in total hip and knee replacements as well as pelvic, acetabular and lower limb fracture surgery. My dual training provides me with unique expertise to perform complex and revision hip and knee replacements, pelvic surgery and surgery for metastatic disease of the lower limb.

I use Mako robotic technology or TraumaCad to undertake meticulous pre-operative planning and templating for all my hip and knee replacements.

In 2019, I was presented with the “You Made a Difference Award” at Addenbrookes Hospital for my dedication to patient care, improving patient experience and supporting the multi-professional team.

After studying Medicine at University College London, I completed orthopaedic surgical training in London, where I gained experience at world-renowned hospitals with sub-specialty training at the Royal National Orthopaedic Hospital and the Royal London Hospital.

I attained Fellowship to the Royal College of Surgeons and was awarded Certificate of Completion of Training. Thereafter, I completed nearly two years of senior advanced fellowship training in primary and revision hip and knee arthroplasty at Bart's Health London and the Royal Adelaide Hospital in Australia. I then undertook a further year of senior advanced fellowship training in pelvic and acetabular reconstruction in Cambridge.

I'm heavily involved in education and teaching medical students, junior doctors and the multi-disciplinary team. I am co-director of the Cambridge Lower Limb Cadaveric Course and faculty member for a number of national courses for surgeons.

I coordinate and deliver inter-professional teaching for the orthopaedic department and the Major Trauma Service at Addenbrookes Hospital. I am a member of Cambridge Orthopaedics, delivering regular educational lectures online and posting instructional videos on YouTube.

I strongly believe in contributing to global medicine and regularly work with charities to support educational programmes across the world. Working with Cambridge Global Health Partnerships (CGHP), I am involved with the exchange of trauma and orthopaedic knowledge and expertise with surgeons in developing countries.

As a member of Humanity Firsts Medical Disaster Response Team, I have been deployed to three international disasters; the Kashmir earthquake 2006, Haitian earthquake 2010 and the Nepalese earthquake 2015. I regularly lecture and teach about orthopaedic management in these austere environments.

I'm dedicated to the core philosophy of compassion and care, ensuring bespoke evidence based treatments at the highest standards through excellence in surgical technique and skill. This is always supported by an excellent dedicated multidisciplinary team to deliver the greatest success for my patients.
