Professional profile

Availability - Murrayfield: Wednesday 8am-11am, 5.30pm, 8pm.

I was appointed to the staff at the Royal Infirmary of Edinburgh and the Murrayfield Hospital in 2003. I am a specialist hip and knee surgeon with particular expertise in difficult joint replacement surgery, and musculo-skeletal oncology surgery.

I’ve trained on the Stryker Mako robotic arm technology in both Australia and Germany. I believe the robot will have a major effect on partial knee replacements. Using the robotic arm means I can personalise every operation to suit each of my patients, and make alterations mid-operation that couldn’t be made using previous surgical methods.
