Professional profile

I have been a consultant in Leicester since 1995 and in that time have built up a practice that is increasingly devoted to joint replacement surgery of the hip and knee including both primary and revision surgery.

I have performed well in excess of 4,000 hip and knee replacements during my career to date.

My orthopaedic training was based in London with a year as a senior resident at Harvard University in the USA and a further year in Perth, Western Australia.

I am actively involved in fundraising both in healthcare and for the wider community.
