Professional profile

I am a specialist knee surgeon and came to the UK after qualifying in Greece. I underwent basic surgical training in London SW Thames and after passing his FRCS in 1994, I undertook a year of research at Robert Jones & Agnes Hunt Orthopaedic Hospital, Oswestry with Professor J.B Richardson. My research was awarded with a PhD. I received my higher orthopaedic training in Manchester; and completed my training by undertaking a knee fellowship in 2001 at the Royal Bolton Hospital and I also visited a number of internationally renowned knee centres.

After my knee fellowship, I concentrated on my clinical and research interests in arthroscopic and reconstructive knee surgery. As a specialist knee surgeon in Surrey, my clinical practice involves all aspects of knee surgery. More specifically, anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) reconstruction, meniscal repairs and articular cartilage regeneration techniques such as microfracture and autologous chondrocyte (cartilage) implantation, as well as total and partial knee replacements using new computer assisted surgery technology.
