Professional profile

I am a Consultant Foot and Ankle Surgeon at University College Hospital - one of London’s renowned teaching hospitals. I obtained my primary medical degree from St. Bartholomew’s and the Royal London Hospital.

My foot and ankle training took me to England’s centres of excellence; The Royal National Orthopaedic Hospital (Stanmore), Great Ormond Street Hospital for Sick Children and The Royal London Hospital. My Fellowship in foot and ankle surgery took place at the prestigious Nuffield Orthopaedic Centre in Oxford.

Alongside my practice at University College Hospital, I am involved in cutting-edge research into the future treatment of Achilles tendinopathy. In addition, I have published widely, including a chapter on heel pain in European Surgical Orthopaedics and Traumatology.

I also bring to Essex the specialist sports injury knowledge that I gained working at the prestigious Institute for Sports Exercise and Health (ISEH) in London, a legacy project of the 2012 Olympic Games.

My Practice follows a multi-disciplinary team framework. I work closely with my physiotherapist and orthotist colleagues to deliver the very best treatment for my patients.

Personal Profile

Having grown up in Brentwood and studied at Brentwood School, I have always been keen to practice in Essex. I am married with three children and live between Brentwood and London. I love spending time building intricate structures out of Lego with my two daughters while my son specialises in destroying them. I have always been a film buff and a massive Kubrick fan. I have also recently started painting again.
