I am a Consultant Orthopaedic Foot and Ankle Surgeon and proud to be one of Europe’s most experienced surgeons in minimally-invasive (keyhole) bunion surgery, having corrected over 900 bunions since 2013, and published and presented my work internationally.

In addition to bunions, I see patients for the full range of foot and ankle conditions, many of which I treat using minimally-invasive techniques, including Achilles injuries, Foot and ankle arthritis, Morton’s neuroma, Plantar fasciitis, Sports injuries including sprains, fractures and breaks, Toe deformities.

In 2021, I published a scientific paper of 292 bunion surgeries I performed, demonstrating excellent results. This is now cited as the landmark paper for the technique.

My practice is based in London and Hertfordshire, although patients come to see me from all over the UK and beyond. I can offer virtual consultations for some appointments where appropriate.

I strive for surgical excellence and believe in involving my patients in decision-making throughout their treatment.

I live in Hertfordshire with my wife and three children. I am an avid cyclist and escape to the countryside roads most Sunday mornings, come rain or shine. As an ex-university player, I enjoy watching rugby, and having hand built a Westfield sports car, I follow Formula 1 passionately. My perfect holiday is skiing with my family.
