I am a Consultant Hand, Wrist and Upper Limb Surgeon at Salford Royal. My elective practice is exclusively hand, wrist and elbow surgery. I also specialise in complex hand and wrist trauma and sports injuries. I have treated many elite sports players and musicians.
My roles include, Specialty Tutor and Lead for Clinical Governance and Patient Safety in trauma and orthopaedics. I attended The Manchester Grammar School before studying medicine at University College, London. I underwent higher specialist training in orthopaedics in the North West. After this, I undertook a 12 month Hand and Upper Limb Fellowship at Wrightington Hospital followed by a Fellowship in Plastic Hand Surgery. I have also won Fellowships at Harvard University and was awarded the prestigious British STACK Fellowship in 2013 and the American Board International ASSH Fellowship in 2014. I was awarded dual postgraduate certification in hand surgery from both the British and the European Boards of Hand Surgery in 2013, becoming the first Consultant Surgeon to hold these awards. In 2016 I became the first surgeon to be awarded the MSc Master of Hand Surgery by the BSSH.
I am an examiner for the British and European Board Hand Diplomas and an Honorary Senior Lecturer at the University of Manchester. I am also a faculty member on a number of surgical courses, including the preparation of senior surgical trainees for European and British Hand Diploma. I am the convenor for the BSSH Practical Masterclasses in hand surgery and the organising committee for the BSSH Instructional courses in Hand Surgery. I am also the SM editor for the European Journal of Hand Surgery.
I have completed a Masters degree in Orthopaedic Engineering and published my research in numerous journals and presented it within the UK and internationally. One of my research projects evaluated the latest techniques of wrist ligament surgery. I am a member of The British Society for Surgery of the Hand, European Wrist Arthroscopy Society and The International Society for Sport Traumatology of the Hand. In addition to this, I am the Chair of the North West Surgical Hand Society and SAS Hand Manchester.
