Professional profile

I hold a full time consultant post in trauma and orthopaedics, based at Addenbrooke's hospital, part of the Cambridge university Hospitals NHS trust. I also consult and operate at the Spire Cambridge Lea Hospital.

I completed my primary medical training in 1993 at the University of the Witwatersrand, Johannesburg, South Africa. After moving to the United Kingdom in 1996, I completed my Basic surgical training at West Suffolk Hospital, Bury St Edmunds and completed my Higher surgical training on the East Anglian orthopaedic rotation (Cambridge) in 2005. I undertook a fellowship predominantly in trauma at the Alfred hospital, Melbourne, Australia in 2006.

My particular areas of interest are disorders of the shoulder and elbow. I undertake arthroscopic and open shoulder and elbow surgery. Doing joint replacements of both the shoulder and elbow. I have been operating predominantly on the shoulder and elbow since 2006.

Trauma care is a particular area of interest, having established the Addenbrookes orthopaedic trauma unit a collaboration of orthopaedic surgeons dedicated to the care of the multiply severely injured patient.
