Professional profile

Availability - Murrayfield: Monday 8am-12.30pm.

After graduating from University of Edinburgh Medical School, I undertook surgical training in Edinburgh, followed by Orthopaedic training in Oxford and Edinburgh.

I completed my training with Specialist Fellowships in Brisbane, Australia and Edinburgh, and was then appointed as a Consultant in the Arthroplasty Service in Edinburgh.

My practice mainly involves hip and knee surgery with an interest in young adult hip joint pain. I am one of only a few surgeons that offer hip arthroscopy.

Since becoming a consultant I have developed an interest in Young Adult Hip Disorders, many of whom do not need joint replacement and have a condition called Femoro-Acetabular (Hip) Impingement (FAI). I am now able to offer Open and Arthroscopic Hip Surgery for the management of this problem. Over the last 10 years I have worked with Dr John Wilson, Anaesthetist.

Clinical Interests

Special Clinical Interests: Hip joint replacement. Revision hip surgery. Hip arthroscopy. Surgery for femoro-acetabular (hip) impingement. Knee joint replacement. Knee arthroscopy.
