Professional profile

I am a Consultant Orthopaedic Surgeon with a special interest in shoulder, elbow and upper limb conditions. My main surgical interests include advances in the arthroscopic (keyhole) treatment for rotator cuff injuries and dislocations of the shoulder as well as joint replacement for shoulder arthritis. I was appointed as a Wellcome Trust Fellow in 2013 and undertook research on rotator cuff sparing approaches for total shoulder replacement. I was also involved in the development of a new total shoulder replacement with the Biomechanical Engineering Department at Imperial College. My work has been published and presented internationally.

Having qualified from Cambridge University and Imperial College London, I completed my specialist orthopaedic training on the North-West Thames rotation in London. This gave me the opportunity to work with many world renowned upper limb surgeons. Prior to becoming a consultant I underwent a one-year advanced UK training fellowship in shoulder, elbow, wrist and hand surgery at the Robert Jones and Agnes Hunt Orthopaedic Hospital in Oswestry.

I am on the GMC specialist register for orthopaedic surgery and a member of the British Shoulder and Elbow Society (BESS). I am a Consultant Orthopaedic Surgeon at West Hertfordshire Hospitals NHS Trust and the clinical lead for Upper Limb.

In my NHS role, I am involved in the training of higher surgical trainees. I teach on a number of orthopaedic and trauma courses nationally and am an AO Faculty member. I enjoy teaching and explaining complex principles simply and transfer these skills to help ensure patients have sufficient knowledge and understanding to make informed decisions about their treatment.
