After passing my FRCS in 1994 I undertook research which was awarded with a PhD at Robert Jones and Agnes Hunt Orthopaedic Hospital in Oswestry, with Professor JB Richardson. Upon completion of my research, I joined the North West Rotation where I received my higher orthopaedic surgical training in Manchester; I completed my training by passing the FRCS (Tr&Orth) exam and undertaking a knee fellowship in 2001 at the Royal Bolton Hospital as well as visiting a number of nationally and internationally renowned knee centres.
