I graduated from the University of Edinburgh in 1999. I completed my surgical training in Edinburgh and spent two further years in Melbourne specialising in knee surgery, foot and ankle surgery and joint replacement. My private practice mirrors a busy NHS practice based at the Royal Infirmary of Edinburgh. I run weekly specialist clinics dedicated to the treatment of knee, foot and ankle problems and perform approximately 450 operations each year. I am also a consultant member of the internationally renowned orthopaedic trauma unit at the Royal Infirmary of Edinburgh.
I have a special interest in joint preservation surgery for osteoarthritis and cartilage injuries of the knee and ankle. Joint preservation surgery is aimed at avoiding or delaying the need for joint replacement or fusion. It involves procedures such as arthroscopy (keyhole surgery), cartilage regeneration procedures (stem-cell based treatments) or osteotomy (joint realignment surgery). I am also fellowship trained in knee replacement surgery and minimally invasive foot and ankle surgery, and regularly perform these procedures.
I was awarded a PhD by the University of Edinburgh in 2011 for my work on cartilage. I was appointed as a National Research Scotland (NRS) fellow by the Chief Scientist’s Office in 2015 to lead research within NHS Lothian in collaboration with the University of Edinburgh. I have contributed widely to the medical literature with a number of published papers. I teach on national and international courses. I supervise and train orthopaedic surgical trainees at the Royal Infirmary of Edinburgh. I am an invited reviewer for leading journals in orthopaedic surgery including the Bone and Joint Journal (BJJ) and Osteoarthritis and Cartilage (OAC). I have acted as a specialist advisor for the National Institute for Health and Care Excellence (NICE).
