Vastly experienced, I am an excellent teacher and published author in my field. I am also a consultant at Cambridge University Hospital, where I treat the most severely injured patients, and challenging foot and ankle conditions. I teach junior surgeons on a daily basis and am co-founder of the international, digital education platform

I trained on the East of England orthopaedic rotation. During this time, I was awarded the Trainee of the Year, Trinity Cup (best in class), and the British Orthopaedic Foot and Ankle Society gold fellowship awards. I completed fellowships in foot and ankle at the University Hospitals Dorset, and major trauma and limb reconstruction at the Royal London Hospital.

I have written book chapters on foot and ankle surgery for a Bailey and Love series, and authored several peer review publications.
