Professional profile

I’m a Consultant Orthopaedic Surgeon specialising in surgery of the hip. I have a particular interest in hip preserving or keyhole surgery and innovative hip replacements.

I’m one of the leading hip arthroscopy surgeons in the UK and perform over 160 of these procedures a year and have designed a comprehensive rehabilitation program to complement that surgery. I’ve pioneered the use of stem cells in hip surgery to regenerate cartilage damage and perform the full range of hip replacement surgery, from young patients with childhood disease to older patients who wish to maintain an active lifestyle. I regularly treat high-level athletes, ranging from dedicated amateurs to Commonwealth, World Championship, Olympic and Premier League competitors. I regularly treat professional athletes from sports including football, rugby, taekwondo, squash and athletics amongst many others.

I treat patients from all over the UK and internationally. I’m the lead Hip Surgeon for the Hip and Groin Clinic, for the English Institute of Sport (Manchester), for the Armed Forces (Northern) and I’m a registered Consultant in the United Arab Emirates, having practiced in Dubai. I’m the lead on many surgeon education courses, training other consultants from all over the UK and Europe in both keyhole and hip replacement techniques.

I’m a keen educator and lead a Master’s program at Salford University and have published many papers in peer reviewed journals. I work closely with the industry to develop new education programs, techniques and surgical devices to improve patient care.

Over the past two years, The Manchester Hip Clinic (which I’m the lead surgeon for) and Spire Manchester Hospital, have been involved in a large multi-centre NHS trial, researching the effectiveness of hip arthroscopic surgery. The hospital was the only private hospital involved. The results of the study have recently been published in The Lancet, one of the world's oldest and best known general medical journals.
