Professional profile

I qualified from Queens University Belfast Medical School in 1988. After a few years of postgraduate orthopaedic training in Belfast I did a pre-registrar trauma fellowship in Stoke on Trent Hospital, Staffordshire.

I trained in orthopaedic surgery on the Robert Jones and Angus Hunt Hospital Oswestry rotation between 1994 to 1999 and at the concluding period of this rotation concentrated my attention on surgery relating to sports injuries. On completion of this rotation I spent a further year in a specialist fellowship training at the Wakefield Orthopaedic and Sports Injury Clinic in Adelaide, Australia, where I focused on minimally invasive knee surgery, sport injuries and joint replacement surgery after which I spent some time in Melbourne working with an eminent knee surgeon. On returning to the United Kingdom, I initially took on a consultant post at Wolverhampton before moving to the University Hospitals of Leicester in August 2002.

My particular interests lie with soft tissue injuries relating to sports injury of the knee and the treatment of this using minimally invasive surgery. I regularly see amateur and professional sports people with knee problems and in addition to providing medical support to many small sports clubs, I look after and provide orthopaedic surgical management for the Leicester Tigers Team and Academy, Leicester City FC Team and Academy, Leicestershire County Cricket and Leicester Riders.

I was delighted to be the attending orthopaedic surgeon at the pool games in Leicester for the Rugby World Cup 2015.

I also have a special interest in cartilage implantation, meniscal transplantation and the treatment of younger patients with degenerative knee problems. I manage the latter with modern conservative treatments and surgical treatments.

Although I perform conventional total knee and hip replacement surgery I have an interest in uni-compartmental (partial) knee replacement and other modern techniques for the treatment of degenerative changes of the knee in younger people. I treat difficult patellar disorders, including pain and instability issues and run special clinics for these problems in association with a physiotherapist, receiving referrals from across the East Midlands. In conjunction with a paediatric orthopaedic surgeon, I also run a clinic for children and adolescents with sports injuries and patellar problems.
