Professional profile

Availability - Spire Murrayfield: alternate Monday 8am-12pm, alternate Tuesday 1.30pm-5.30pm.

I am a fully qualified Orthopaedic Surgeon with a specialist interest in shoulder, elbow and upper limb surgery. I specialize in arthroscopic (keyhole) surgery. My clinics are structured to swiftly form accurate diagnoses, and apply focused treatment. My practice is audited to maintain standards of excellence in patient care. I qualified from the world-renowned Residency Training Program at the University of Toronto, Canada in 2003. I came to Scotland specifically to complete Specialist Fellowship Training in Upper Limb Surgery at the Edinburgh Royal Infirmary and the Glasgow Royal Infirmary. Since 2005 I have been a Consultant Orthopaedic Surgeon in the Edinburgh Royal Infirmary, where I perform elective upper limb and trauma surgeries.

I am the Training Program Committee Chair for the South East Scotland Deanery, responsible for the training of all Specialist Registrars in Edinburgh. I find this and my other academic activities keep me up to date with latest advances in my field. In 2010 I joined my colleagues as a member of the Edinburgh Orthopaedic Specialist group.
