Professional profile

I graduated from the University of Aberdeen in 1996 and completed my Orthopaedic training in the North-West rotation, obtaining the FRCS (Orth). My sub-specialist training was in Vancouver at Clive Duncan's unit at UBC, Vancouver, Canada. I was the recipient of the British Orthopaedic Foundation Travelling Fellowship award visiting the world-renowned Mayo Clinic, Minnesota and the Hospital of Surgery (HSS) in New York, USA. I was also a Visiting Surgeon at the Steadman-Philippon Clinic in Vail, Colorado.

My specialist interests are in hip and knee surgery, focused on early arthritic conditions of the hip and knee, and the after effects of sports injuries, such as treatment of meniscal and cartilage tears of the knee, labral tears of the hip, associated with early hip arthritis. For advanced arthritis, I perform “optimally invasive” hip and knee replacements, incorporating enhanced recovery techniques. I have a large sports injuries practice managing hip labral tears, meniscal and ACL injuries.

My research background resulted in presentations in international meetings such as the British Hip Society, British Orthopaedic Research Society, European Orthopaedic Research Society and the British Orthopaedic Association. Prizes and awards garnered include prizes for best basic science research (Peter Mallimson Prize, Best Fellow Research Award UBC, Vancouver), Ronald Ravens Barbers Award and the Sir John Charnley Trust Award. In 2005 I was awarded the Harvey Green Surgical Teacher Prize.

Decision making in managing patients with hip and knee conditions is key to ensuring best possible clinical outcomes. I work closely with highly regarded colleagues and monitor all patients who have surgery with validated and non-validated patient outcome measures to monitor, audit and reassure patients regarding outcomes after surgery.
