I am a Consultant Orthopaedic Surgeon specialising in all aspects of knee surgery, primary hip replacements and sports knee disorders. I am actively involved in teaching and hold vast experience of general and specialist orthopaedics. I developed an interest in knee and hip surgery early in my career and have worked with some renowned surgeons and in big units in these sub-specialties.

In 2011, after completing a prestigious fellowship in knee surgery at the Exeter Knee Reconstruction Unit (Princess Elizabeth Orthopaedic Centre), I began NHS practice at consultant level.

Before starting as a consultant at Tameside General Hospital, I worked in a number of other centres around the UK, including Exeter, Leighton Hospital in Crewe, University Hospital of North Midlands and Central Manchester University Hospital.

My elective NHS and private practice encompasses all aspects of knee surgery and primary hip replacements. I perform hip and knee replacements incorporating principles of early functional recovery including use of enhanced recovery techniques. I have a special interest in advanced surgical techniques for the management of knee arthritis in young patients which includes cartilage surgery, osteotomies/re-alignment procedures and different partial knee replacements.

I am also trained with the use of customised knee replacements and computer aided knee replacements. I have a special interest in arthroscopic surgery of the knee and surgery for sports knee injuries including ACL/PCL/multi-ligament injuries and also management of patellar (knee cap) instability and pain. I also perform cemented and un-cemented hip replacements with use of ceramic and advance plastic bearing materials where needed, especially in young arthritic patients.

A healthy work/leisure balance is important for medical professionals and in my spare time I enjoy writing poetry, often on subjects requiring greater awareness such as the unfortunate tragedies of war and children suffering with progressive disabilities. I also value the time spent with my wife and two children; we are fond of travelling. With regards to my physical health, I like going to the gym and am very keen on clay shooting and swimming.
