Professional profile

I started training in orthopaedics at Madras University in 1993 completing a Masters degree in Orthopaedics in 1996. I did further basic orthopaedic training in Yorkshire for two years completing my FRCS in 1998. As a Higher Surgical trainee in Yorkshire from 1998 to 2004 I completed my FRCS in Orthopaedics in 2002 and completed an acclaimed one year fellowship in Shoulder and Elbow Surgery at the Reading Shoulder Unit in 2004. I am a consultant at Mid Yorkshire NHS Trust and honorary senior lecturer at University of Leeds.

I provide treatments for complex shoulder problems, impingement, rotator cuff tears, arthritis, cuff tear arthropathy, acromioclavicular joint injuries, shoulder dislocations, frozen shoulders, joint replacement of the shoulder and elbow. I am also interested in sports injuries of the shoulder and elbow.

I provide a one-stop clinic for the patients and use ultrasound as part of the diagnostic work up.
