Professional profile

After studying at Liverpool University and qualified in 1986. I was elected a Fellow of the Royal College of Surgeons of Edinburgh in 1991, after which I undertook a period of orthopaedic research at Nottingham University. I continued my orthopaedic training in Nottingham, during which time I acquired extensive experience in trauma surgery working at the Queens Medical Centre (one of the busiest trauma hospitals in Europe with a worldwide reputation as a Centre of Excellence for trauma). My initial consultant post was at the University Hospital Aintree but subsequently moved to the Royal Liverpool Hospital where I worked in collaboration to develop the Liverpool Upper Limb Unit.

The unit has achieved an international reputation as a Centre for Excellence in the field of shoulder and elbow surgery and particularly with regards to arthroscopic (keyhole) surgery. As a result I have gained both national and international recognition as being at the forefront of arthroscopic (keyhole) surgical techniques. In recognition of this, I was awarded the Travelling Fellowship of the British Elbow and Shoulder Society in 2002.

I am Course Director of the Liverpool Advanced Shoulder Arthroscopy Course which is one of the largest arthroscopic shoulder surgery courses outside of the United States and also the Course Director of the AO Liverpool Shoulder and Elbow Trauma Course which was the first course of its type ever to be awarded AO recognition. I am regularly invited to lecture and carry out live surgical demonstrations at trauma and upper limb related courses across Europe, carrying out live surgical demonstrations of advanced arthroscopic shoulder surgery techniques.

I'm the Upper Limb Surgeon to Liverpool Football Club and also treat players from 3 other Premiership Football Clubs. In addition, I regularly contribute to articles in the national press.
