Professional profile

I completed medical school in London before training around the South East region in the generality of orthopaedics. I then undertook a foot and ankle fellowship in London where I developed arthroscopic and minimally invasive surgery skills. The fellowship involved treating a large number of elite athletes including premiership football and rugby players and Olympic athletes. I then completed a fellowship in trauma at a Major Trauma Centre, here I gained experience in managing complex trauma, in particular lower limb and foot and ankle injuries.

I specialise in all aspects of foot and ankle surgery. My interest is in minimally invasive and arthroscopic surgery. I utilise a range of modern surgical techniques to achieve excellent results where traditional treatments have failed. These techniques also allow for full weight bearing post-operatively in the vast majority of cases allowing early rehabilitation and return to sport or work.

I have a wide experience managing sports injuries and complex trauma including deformity correction and the management of bone infection. In my NHS practice I regularly receive referrals of complex patients from across the South coast.
