Professional profile

I am a consultant orthopaedic surgeon and I specialise in hip and knee surgery. In addition to performing primary and revision hip and knee replacements I undertake arthroscopic surgery in both the knee and the hip. I have a particular interest in computer aided knee replacement surgery required for complex deformities.

I am the chairman of the medical advisory committee at Spire Leeds Hospital. I left Leeds Teaching Hospitals Trust in April 2015 to work as a medical director for Spire Healthcare on a national basis. I continue to see insured, self-pay and NHS choose and book patients at Spire Leeds Hospital.
