Consultant Trauma and Orthopaedic Surgeon

"Staff at the Spire have always struck me as being committed, personable, caring and professional. Like with all great centres, it is the people that make the place, and the Spire is no exception."
I have been an Orthopaedic Consultant Surgeon since 2017. Currently caring for trauma and orthopaedic patients at Addenbrookes University Hospital NHS Foundation Trust as part of the specialists forming the Cambridge Orthopaedic Pelvic Unit (COPU), Orthopaedic Trauma Unit and the Major Trauma Clinical Lead. Complex hip and knee replacement and trauma are my main two passions in surgical practice.
I predominantly perform hip and knee replacement surgery in addition to knee arthroscopic surgery (keyhole). I also perform pelvic and acetabular trauma surgery and reconstruction and complex trauma fixations of the lower limb, specializing in minimally invasive and percutaneous techniques.
I have performed numerous joint replacement surgery over the last few years as a consultant and a high number of trauma procedures with over a hundred pelvic cases per year.
After Studying Medicine at Cambridge University and University College London, I completed my fellowship at the world famous Royal London Hospital Major Trauma Centre studying complex trauma, pelvic acetabular trauma and revision arthroplasty. Here, following the fellowship I performed a period of consultancy before being employed at Salford Royal Hospital as a consultant establishing the pelvic and acetabular Trauma service at the newly formed Major Trauma Centre.
On return to Cambridge, I have endeavored to improve the systems of care of patients with orthopaedic and trauma injuries within the NHS service. This indeed is a passion of mine, aiming to improve not only surgical care but also the holistic care of patients who have suffered greatly from accidents and injuries.
Spire Cambridge Lea Hospital is only able to provide Covid-19 tests to patients undergoing surgery at our hospital. Covid-19 testing or antibody tests are not available as a standalone service.

Outside of the work environment, I enjoy running, cycling and drawing performing the artwork on diagrams in my own published medical work. Another hobby is repairing my not so classic car, fortunately I am a better surgeon than mechanic.
