I was appointed as a substantive consultant in 2011 at Bradford Teaching Hospitals as a consultant knee surgeon. This was after finishing two competitive and rewarding knee surgery fellowships. I took over the NHS work of a senior knee surgeon with a complex practice. Since then have enjoyed building and nurturing a first class knee service with – weekly knee meeting, a ‘one-stop’ multi-disciplinary clinic, outreach sports injury clinics in A&E, day-case complex knee surgery and driving regional knee research forwards.
I am passionate about knee surgery and also the non-operative management of many knee complaints.
I perform 700-750 surgical procedures per year and manage many patients with a non-operative multi-disciplinary approach.
I am a reviewer for ‘The Knee’ journal.

I have successfully treated athletes in a multitude of sports / recreational activities from weekend warriors to people representing England /GB. I truly love my job, especially the satisfaction of getting people back competing again or walking pain free having suffered with arthritis for years. I do enjoy all sports, my main passion has always been rugby and only a few years ago I represented Yorkshire in the front row! My boots have not yet been hung up (and I should know better). I spend most of my spare time now running around / cleaning up after my brood of three.Back to top
