Professional profile

My areas of specialist interest are arthroscopic surgery of the shoulder, primary and revision shoulder replacement and sports injuries to the upper limb.

I qualified from St. George's Hospital Medical School in 1995 gaining most of my surgical training in the South West Thames region, during which time I had the great fortune to work for Paul Calvert. It was Paul who inspired me to take up a career in shoulder surgery.

My expertise in shoulder surgery was attained from holding UK upper limb fellowship posts at Wrightington Upper Limb Unit and the Reading Shoulder Unit under the supervision of Mr Steve Copeland. I was then awarded the British Elbow and Shoulder Society North American Fellowship. In North America I spent time in the Mayo clinic (Rochester, Minnesota) the University of Washington in Seattle and Boston, mainly concentrating on upper limb sports injuries.

I am actively involved in teaching and research. I am a regular faculty member on both national and international shoulder arthroscopy and joint replacement courses. I am actively involved in product design and hold several patents for products currently used in shoulder surgery.
