Professional profile

I am a consultant orthopaedic surgeon specialising in surgery of the shoulder and elbow. My areas of interest are arthroscopic (keyhole) shoulder surgery, sports injuries of the shoulder and elbow, shoulder joint replacement surgery and upper limb trauma.

I was appointed as a consultant at Bradford Teaching Hospitals NHS Trust in July 2011. I graduated from Oxford University Medical School in 1998. I completed basic and higher surgical training in the West Yorkshire region. After completing my specialist orthopaedic training I undertook a twelve month upper limb fellowship post at the internationally renowned Wrightington Hospital. I have presented research work at national and international meetings. I have published in peer reviewed medical journals. I train junior doctors and orthopaedic surgeons in training.

I am a member of the British Elbow and Shoulder Society, the British Trauma Society and the British Orthopaedic Association. I enjoy the many and varied challenges that running a specialist shoulder and elbow practice involves. I firmly believe that the key to achieving the best possible outcomes is to ensure the patient is well informed and wholly involved in all treatment decisions.
