I am a renowned knee and hip surgeon with more than 25 years’ experience in treating various hip and knee pain ailments including arthritis and sports injuries.

I have extensive experience in personalised computer navigated surgery over the last 12 years. I am a pioneering surgeon in computer navigated i-ASSIST minimally invasive knee replacement and am the first surgeon to use this technique in the UK in 2013; I have one of the largest series in the UK.

I am also a specialist in minimally invasive and robotic hip and knee replacements. I presently use the MAKO robotic-assisted knee replacement at Spire Manchester Hospital and ROSA robotic knee replacement for Spire Cheshire Hospital. 

I am an expert in the management of early arthritis in young patients and have extensive experience in knee injections including nStride injections and knee arthroscopy (keyhole surgery).
