I am a fellowship-trained Consultant Orthopaedic Surgeon with a specialist interest in hip surgery, metastatic cancer in the hip and pelvis and general trauma. My wide breadth of training and research means that I endeavour to use the best evidence to inform patients on the best options for them when it comes to the management of their orthopaedic problems.
My NHS practice is based at Guy’s and St Thomas’ Hospitals. My elective clinical practice encompasses all aspects of hip surgery, including primary, complex primary joint replacements, high-risk arthroplasty patients and revision (re-do) surgery for all causes including infection. In collaboration with Guy’s Cancer Centre, I also provide a service for metastatic bone disease around the hip and pelvis. I am the hip fracture lead at Guy’s and St Thomas’ Hospitals.
I read medicine at GKT School of Medicine and Dentistry, King’s College London, before completing my orthopaedic training on the prestigious Guy’s and St Thomas rotation. I am double fellowship-trained having completed subspecialty fellowship training in the Bone Tumour Unit at the RNOH (Stanmore), before completing an adult reconstruction and joint arthroplasty fellowship at the Royal Adelaide Hospital in Australia. I was the recipient of two European travelling fellowships to visit centres of orthopaedic excellence. I won both the European Musculoskeletal Oncology Society (EMSOS) and British Orthopaedic Association (BOA) Singhal Fellowships. I used these opportunities to visit the Rizzoli Orthopaedic Institute (Bologna, Italy) and Leiden University Medical Centre (Leiden, Netherlands) where I gained further experience in complex reconstruction techniques such as the use of block allograft and massive endoprostheses.
I have an extensive research background, most recently winning the American Academy of Orthopaedic Surgeon (AAOS) video prize in 2019 for work on Reconstruction of Severe Acetabular Defects at Revision Total Hip Arthroplasty which I conducted whilst working for Professors Solomon and Howie whilst in Adelaide. I have completed a postgraduate diploma in Trauma & Orthopaedic Surgery from the University of Brighton as well as Masters in Surgical Technology from Imperial College London.
My current research focus is in the outcomes related to high-risk hip arthroplasty and as such currently enrolled in a PhD at King’s College London. In addition to my clinical commitments, I am an Honorary Senior Clinical Lecturer at King’s College London, where I am involved in undergraduate education as an undergraduate tutor and educational supervisor. I have a Postgraduate Certificate in Medical Education from the University of Cambridge. As a member of the Faculty of Surgical Trainers (FST) at the Royal College of Surgeons of Edinburgh I am regularly involved in the training of junior and senior orthopaedic trainees. I was appointed as a Royal College of Surgeons Surgical Tutor for Guy’s and St Thomas’ Hospitals in 2020.
I have presented research widely with over 50 national and international presentations.
I have an active interest in medical negligence having completed a Master of Laws (LLM) at the Cardiff School of Law, Cardiff University.
COVID-19 testing or antibody tests are not available as a standalone service at Spire London East Hospital.
