I have been a consultant orthopaedic surgeon for six years, specialising in hip and knee replacements, knee reconstruction surgery and sports medicine. I am an expert in managing anterior knee pain and patella instability, cartilage injuries and treating young patients with arthritis. I have experience and interest in patient specific knee replacement surgery, ligament reconstructions, joint preservation surgery and regenerative biological therapy for knee arthritis and sports injuries.

I specialise in hip and knee replacements, knee reconstruction surgery and sports medicine. I manage and treat young patients troubled with arthritis pain through a variety of joint preservation treatment options. I have a special interest in managing people with anterior knee pain, patella instability and cartilage injuries. I undertake innovative evidence based procedures which include patient specific knee replacement surgery, knee resurfacing procedures, meniscal replacement operations and regenerative therapies including PRP injections. Other procedures I routinely perform are partial knee replacements, knee revision surgery, ACL and other knee ligament reconstruction procedures, knee arthroscopies and all cartilage restoration procedures.

In both my NHS and private practice, I routinely perform the following number of procedures on average per year: Total knee replacements - 120; Total hip replacements - 60; Partial knee replacements - 30; Knee arthroscopy procedures - 180; ACL reconstructions - 40; Patella stabilisation procedures - 30; Multi ligament knee reconstruction – 15; Knee resurfacing and cartilage restoration procedures – 40 and regenerative therapy procedures and injections – 80.

I am a tutor, lecturer and supervisor of trainees and medical students for the University of Liverpool. I am an examiner for medical students at the Liverpool University Medical School. I have previously been an examiner for the University of Toronto Medical School in Canada. I organise and run teaching courses for physiotherapists and GPs in the North West region.
