I am a Consultant Orthopaedic Surgeon with over 25 years of orthopaedic experience. I was appointed as a Consultant Orthopaedic Surgeon in 2002 working at Trafford General Hospital and Manchester Royal Infirmary. My practice included all aspects of elective and trauma hand, wrist and elbow surgery as well as general trauma surgery and spinal surgery for low back pain and sciatica throughout this time.

I graduated from the University of London in 1990 and became a Fellow of the Royal College of Surgeons of England in 1994. My orthopaedic training was based in London and I worked in specialist hand units including hand and wrist surgery at Broomfield Hospital working with the plastic surgery department. I had specialist training in the Peripheral Nerve Injury and Congenital Hand Deformity Unit at the Royal National Orthopaedic Hospital in London and at Great Ormond Street Hospital.

I had specialist training in spinal surgery and scoliosis at the Royal National Orthopaedic Hospital and at Great Ormond Street Hospital for sick children. I worked and trained in the Integrated Back Pain Management Unit at the Royal National Orthopaedic Hospital. I have continued to maintain an interest particularly in the conservative management of low back pain and sciatica as well as neck and arm pain.

I provide a direct access approach to my practice and deal directly with patients who do not need to deal with a secretary and patients can contact me directly to deal with their case and management. I have been able to provide this personal approach for over 4 years since I left the NHS and since 2016 have been working exclusively in private practice.
