Specialises in

I am an experienced Consultant Orthopaedic Surgeon of nearly 15 years, specialising in hip and knee surgery. 

My private practice at Spire Cardiff Hospital focuses on hip and knee surgery, specialising in arthroplasty and revision surgery.

My NHS practice is based at Cwm Taf Morgannwg University Health Board where I treat general trauma and elective orthopaedics.

I am regularly involved in teaching medical students from Swansea and Cardiff universities and I am Clinical Supervisor for Specialist Registrars in Trauma and Orthopaedics.

I specialise in treating hip and knee degenerative conditions requiring arthroplasty surgery. I treat sporting injuries or degenerative pathology of the knee arthoscopically. My particular interest is hip and knee surgery. I have performed in excess of 1,000 hip and knee replacements and knee arthroscopies.

I am an Honorary Lecturer at Cardiff University and Clinical Supervisor for Specialist Registrars.
