I am an Orthopaedic Surgeon specialising in surgery of the hip, knee, foot and ankle. My elective practice is exclusively in lower limb surgery and knee arthroplasty. I offer a range of implants for hip and knee replacement including small incision hip and knee surgery and unicompartmental knee replacement.

I perform a considerable number of revision total hip replacement and total knee replacement procedures. I also perform resurfacing hip replacements and unicompartmental knee replacements.

As a Consultant Orthopaedic Surgeon I performed the first iASSIST total knee replacement in the UK at Spire Cheshire Hospital. To date I have performed the most iASSIST knee replacements in the UK. iASSIST knee is an advanced surgical guidance system using Bluetooth technology designed to improve the accuracy and alignment of total knee replacement surgery.

I qualified in Bombay, India and underwent training as a specialist registrar in the Liverpool region. I then underwent sub-specialist fellowship training for hip surgery at Wrightington Hospital before taking up my post, specialising exclusively in lower limb surgery at Warrington and Halton Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust.

I have a major interest in revision hip and knee replacement. I have a keen interest in research and I have a number of presentations and publications.

I have pioneered the signature total knee replacement and the iASSIST total knee replacement, and I have treated the largest number of patients using the iASSIST procedure in the UK.
