I graduated from Leeds Medical School with honours in 2000. Following basic surgical training, I was appointed to the Yorkshire orthopaedic training programme in 2005. I was awarded the fellowship of the Royal College of Surgeons in 2010 and was added to the Specialist Register for Trauma and Orthopaedics in 2011.

I undertook two fellowships during this period. In 2011 I worked with Nick London in Harrogate, gaining expertise in all aspects of knee surgery. And in 2012, prior to my appointment at Calderdale, I undertook an arthroplasty fellowship in York, specialising in all forms of knee and hip replacement.
