Professional profile

I am a consultant orthopaedic trauma surgeon working at Addenbrookes hospital, Cambridge University Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust.

My main interest is orthopaedic trauma of upper and lower extremities with a special emphasis on complex injuries and posttraumatic sequelae of the lower leg and trauma of the elbow and shoulder. These are also the areas of my medico-legal expertise. For fixation of complex lower leg injuries, infected non-unions, non-unions and delayed unions I often use circular frames (Taylor Spatial Frame, Ilizarov Frame). In my elective work I focus on knee arthroplasties (total knee replacement, uni-condylar knee replacement) as well as knee arthroscopies with special anatomical type of ACL reconstructions and meniscus repairs.

My special interest in the arthroplasty field is intra-operative analgesia where I inject local anaesthetic at the end of the operation to help make the first few post-operative days as comfortable as possible for patients and enable them to exercise as soon as possible post knee replacement to regain the range of movement in the joint as soon as possible. This is possibly related to a better outcome of surgery.
