Having studied medicine in Edinburgh as an undergraduate, I qualified in 2000 and remained in Edinburgh for my basic and higher specialist surgical training. I undertook a specialist training fellowship in complex surgery of the Foot & Ankle in Glasgow in 2009, followed by a lower limb reconstruction fellowship in Toronto. I have undertaken further specialist training in ankle replacement and forefoot deformity correction surgery with leading European Foot & Ankle specialists in cities including Zurich, Bordeaux, Paris and Padua.
I took up post as a Consultant Orthopaedic Surgeon in February 2010 as the first surgeon in Fife with a major subspecialty interest in Foot & Ankle surgery. I perform the full range of Foot & Ankle surgery including ankle replacements, hindfoot deformity surgery, ligament reconstructions and arthroscopic ankle surgery using modern techniques. I carry out forefoot deformity correction using techniques which include the scarf osteotomy and minimally invasive (keyhole) surgery for bunion correction; these procedures allow rapid post-operative mobilisation without the need for plaster casting. I also perform general and specialist foot and ankle trauma surgery. I introduced the Cartiva implant to Scotland for treatment of osteoarthritis of the great toe (hallux rigidus).
I have taken a leading role in developing Foot & Ankle surgical services in Scotland and across the United Kingdom. I organised and taught on specialist aspects of Foot and Ankle surgery for trainee surgeons and other health professionals.
I am a prominent member of the British Orthopaedic Foot and Ankle Society and was elected to its Scientific Committee in 2014.

I have lived in Edinburgh since 1994 and have a range of outside interests which include walking, photography, travel, wine and malt whisky. These have increasingly taken a back seat recently as they have been superseded by the demands of his three small children.Back to top
