I have in depth knowledge, skills and experience in modern concepts and techniques in trauma and orthopaedic surgery.

I am highly qualified to support candidates preparing for their FRCS Orthopaedics exams. I have published research on hip and knee conditions in renowned journals, both nationally and internationally. I am also proud to have won the prestigious Orthopaedic Research UK prize for my outstanding research achievements.
