Specialises in

I am a Consultant Orthopaedic Surgeon with extensive fellowship training in shoulder and elbow surgery. Having qualified in 2004 from King’s College London, I completed my basic surgical training in London before specialising in Trauma and Orthopaedics. I was appointed to the Birmingham rotation where I developed an interest in shoulder and elbow surgery. I transferred my training to Scotland to be with my wife. Following this, I completed two, year long fellowships, specialising in shoulder and elbow surgery. Firstly, at the Glasgow Royal Infirmary and then at the internationally renowned Wrightington Orthopaedic Hospital in its prestigious Upper Limb Unit.

I have an interest in sports injuries, trauma and degenerative disorders of the shoulder and elbow. Further interests include: arthroscopic treatment of rotator cuff disorders, impingement and shoulder instability; Arthroscopic and open treatment of elbow tendonitis, instability, and arthritis; Shoulder and elbow replacement surgery; Treatment of clavicle, shoulder and elbow fractures.

I have been published extensively, writing on both laboratory and clinical orthopaedic based studies. My most recent research interest is regarding the management of complex primary and revision shoulder replacements along with the role of shoulder replacements in the treatment of shoulder fractures.
