I am a Consultant Shoulder and Upper limb Surgeon practicing at Spire Cardiff Hospital. I specialise in keyhole (arthroscopic surgery) and minimally invasive surgery of shoulder and elbow, as well as general orthopaedics, shoulder replacements, upper limb surgery and trauma. I bring broad experience and expertise in orthopaedic surgery to my private orthopaedic practice at Spire Cardiff Hospital.
My special interests include shoulder dislocations, frozen shoulder, arthritis, rotator cuff tears and sports injuries of the shoulder. I have an extensive shoulder surgery practice treating sports injuries of the Shoulder, and arthritis. My shoulder surgery and upper limb surgery use advanced arthroscopic methods I developed during clinical visits to leading centres in the UK and Europe, and on my fellowship in Addenbrooke's Hospital, Cambridge and New York University (NYU) Hospital, New York, USA.
My specialist elbow practice includes arthroscopic joint release surgery and debridement of arthritic joints, replacement of radial head and complex elbow trauma. I also carry out keyhole surgery of knee and knee replacements.
