I am a Specialist Orthopaedic Surgeon who has treated many high level athletes and sports professionals, with shoulder or knee problems.

During the London 2012 Olympics, I had the honour of being the surgeon who operated on all Olympians and ParaOlympians that required shoulder or elbow surgery during the Games. Due to my role, I was invited to a special reception at the Queens Gallery in Buckingham Palace.

I have seen and helped manage many athletes with knee problems, including those linked to Premiership Football Clubs, and have treated many sports people with ACL injuries, cartilage and meniscal tears.

I have held important positions training other surgeons, representing the prestigious Royal Colleges Of Surgeons, first as a Tutor from 2010-2014, before being appointed as one of two Regional Surgical Advisors for London. In 2015, I organised the pan London Sports and Exercise Medicine teaching programme, and now I'm an examiner for the prestigious Intercollegiate Fellowship of the Royal Colleges of Surgeons (FRCS exams). I was a member of the Specialist Training Committee for Sports and Exercise Medicine Trainees in London from 2009 to 2015, so played an important part helping to develop this new speciality.

On the NHS, I worked as the Surgical Lead or Joint Service Lead of the Sports Injury Service at Homerton University Hospital from 2009 to 2015.

My research interests include orthopaedic shoulder and knee problems, including sports injuries in elite rugby players. I had in excess of 70 presentations accepted at prestigious national and international meetings by 2012. At the main World Shoulder and Elbow Meeting in 2010 my research was the only piece from the UK that was short-listed for the best prize and I was invited to give an educational talk at the next World Shoulder and Elbow Meeting (ISCES) held in Japan in 2013.

I have a passion for teaching and training. I have run many Sports Injury Symposium in London and have been invited around the world to deliver lectures and master classes teaching other surgeons, consultants and practitioners.
