MBBS, MS, FRCS (Ed), FRCS (Glas), MCh (Orth), FRCSEd (Orth)

Specialises in

I trained in the South East Thames Orthopaedic training scheme, Guys, St Thomas, and at Kings College associated hospitals with further training at the University of Liverpool. I passed the FRCS (Ed) and FRCS (Glas) exam in 1979 and M Ch Orthopaedics, Liverpool in 1982 and FRCS Ed Orthopaedics in 1983. I worked as a consultant orthopaedic surgeon from 1984 to 1992 overseas. I was then appointed as a consultant orthopaedic surgeon at Sandwell West Birmingham Hospitals, West Midlands in 1993.

From 1984 to 1992, I took the opportunity to visit several international centres and underwent training in arthroscopic surgery of the shoulder, knee and have maintained this interest. I have performed hundreds of total hip and total knee replacements, anterior cruciate ligament reconstructions and multi-ligament reconstructions of the knee. Currently I perform minimal invasive total hip, total knee and shoulder replacements. I also perform a full range of arthroscopic shoulder operations, shoulder stabilisations, rotator cuff repairs and reconstructive surgery for fractures around the shoulder.

I regularly attend the American Academy meetings, British Orthopaedic Association, and British Society of the Knee and Shoulder surgery meetings. I have a flexible appointment system focused on patient needs and am able to offer very high quality care. I work with an excellent group of physiotherapists and a rehabilitation team, who aid to get my patients back to pre-injury fitness as soon as possible.

Personal profile

I'm happily married with two grown up children, a son and a daughter who have both now qualified as GPs. In my spare time I have a keen interest in cricket and keeping fit by regularly swimming and walking. I'm very musical and enjoy meeting up with a group of friends to practice playing the tabla – the Indian drums.

I have travelled to many parts of the world, most recently visiting Cambodia. Once or twice a year I also volunteer for a charity in India and travel out there to lecture to orthopaedic doctors to develop their knowledge with my extensive experience in key specialist areas.
