I am a consultant hand, wrist and elbow surgeon specialising in the treatment of upper limb conditions. I am based at the Birmingham Hand Centre, the largest specialist hand centre in Europe serving a population of over five million, and regularly help patients with complex degenerative and traumatic conditions of the arm.

I am one of the few surgeons in the UK that perform a high volume of keyhole (endoscopic) carpal tunnel surgery, which results in less pain, quicker return to work, and significantly reduced scarring. I am also an expert in joint replacements for thumb arthritis, as well as a designer of custom-made 3D printed implants for wrist and forearm deformity correction. Other specialist procedures I offer include the latest wide-awake techniques for Dupuytren’s disease, PRP solutions for tennis/golfer’s elbow, ganglion cyst removal, trigger finger release, and keyhole surgery for the wrist. My sub-specialisation in the upper limb allows me to build a focussed practice that can optimise the outcomes for my patients. As a guitarist and cellist, my musical background gives me a unique appreciation of the demands of both amateur and professional musicians.

I graduated from Cambridge University with honours, and am a Fellow of the Royal College of Surgeons. In addition to a comprehensive orthopaedic education, I received advanced hand and wrist specialisation through the prestigious National Interface Fellowship, where I gained plastic surgery and peripheral nerve expertise.  I was a fellow of the Wrightington Upper Limb Unit, working alongside world renowned experts in challenging and complex conditions. After finishing specialist training, I was awarded the highly regarded British Orthopaedic Association reconstruction fellowship to further hone my skills in centres of excellence in Europe and Asia.

I am keen to advance medical research, and have published over 40 scientific papers in internationally recognised medical textbooks and journals. I am a chief investigator for a NHS approved randomised multi-centre trial, investigating the optimum method of treating hand fractures in soldiers and civilians. I am an editorial board member of the Journal of Hand Surgery and am regularly invited to teach in international conferences.
