Professional profile

I am a consultant orthopaedic surgeon. I undertake surgery on most conditions of the lower limb with a special interest in joint replacement surgery, especially patient specific and partial replacement in the knee. I also undertake arthroscopic surgery, ACL reconstruction and cartilage regeneration procedures like micro-fracture and stem cells. In the foot and ankle I undertake forefoot reconstruction and ankle surgery.

Over the years, I have performed over 1,020 Total Knee Replacements, 400 Total Hip Replacements, 640 Arthroscopies and 60 ACL reconstructions.

I have been training or working as an orthopaedic surgeon since 1992. After training in the UK, Ireland and USA, and having previously worked abroad in a consultant capacity, I was appointed as a substantive NHS consultant in 2010. I have been on the GMC Specialist Register since February 2010. I have a particular expertise in joint replacement surgery, especially patient specific and partial replacements in the knee. I was awarded a Knee Fellowships in Bournemouth and Basildon.

I have an interest in teaching and academic orthopaedics. I am currently participating as Principal Investigator for the Basildon site in the multi centre PATH 2 trial, looking into the role of PRP (Platelet Rich Plasma) in the treatment of acute Achilles tendon injuries.

I have also published book chapters and papers in peer reviewed journals.
