I have practiced as a Consultant Orthopaedic Surgeon for almost 25 years and have wide experience in hip replacement of various forms including resurfacing. I also have wide experience in hip revision surgery, knee replacement and knee revision surgery. I have provided a wide range of children's orthopaedic surgical services over the same period.
