I am a leading Consultant Orthopaedic Surgeon with more than 15 years of experience in Birmingham, specialising in hip surgery, hip revision surgery, knee surgery, sports injuries, sports medicine and osteoarthritis.

I perform minimally invasive hip surgery, utilising a new approach, (direct superior approach). This approach spares all the muscles that are essential for normal gait, which means that the rehabilitation can be faster and the chances of developing abnormal gait (Trendelenburg gait) are significantly reduced. This in conjunction with a small scar, improves satisfaction, speeds up return to baseline activity and reduces the length of stay in the hospital. I also offer a robotic alternative to joint replacement surgery called Mako at Spire Little Aston Hospital.

I graduated from Leicester – Warwick Medical School in 2004 with merit and completed my orthopaedic training in the West Midlands, on the Warwick Orthopaedic Training Programme. I completed further advanced training at Oxford, a centre of excellence in orthopaedic research.

During my training, I developed an interest in hip pain in all age groups. I manage hip pain both surgically and non-surgically, aiming to preserve the natural joint wherever possible.
