Professional profile

I am a Fellowship trained elbow and upper limb orthopaedic surgeon.

I am experienced in elbow, wrist and shoulder arthroscopy procedures. I carry out surgery for arthritis, trauma, nerve entrapment, tendon pain and rupture, and instability. I also regularly perform joint replacement surgery of the hand, wrist, elbow and shoulder. I use other non-surgical techniques such as platelet rich plasma (PRP) injection where appropriate and my particular clinical interest is in sports injuries.

I work with a number of sports clubs and I am also on the medical advisory committee of the European Golf Tour. I am enthusiastic about education and research and sit on the British Hand Society Committee for Research and Audit.
