Professional profile

Availability - Spire Shawfair: Monday. Spire Murrayfield: Ad hoc.

I am a consultant orthopaedic surgeon based at the Royal Infirmary of Edinburgh where I exclusively treat patients with hip and knee problems.

My orthopaedic training was undertaken in Edinburgh before moving to Sydney, Australia for sub-specialist fellowship training in joint replacement surgery, lower limb re-alignment surgery and sports knee surgery.

My expertise is in hip and knee replacement surgery including computer assisted surgery, robotic assisted surgery and revision surgery. I have a special interest in young adult knee arthritis and I undertake computer assisted knee re-alignment surgery in younger and more active patients trying to avoid a joint replacement. I also undertake knee arthroscopy for soft tissue problems around the knee such as meniscal tears.
