Professional profile

I am a consultant lower limb and orthopaedic sports medicine surgeon at Salford Royal Hospital (University of Manchester Teaching Hospital) and at The Manchester Sports Medicine Clinic. I trained in London and Manchester, following which I worked in the USA for a year at a prestigious sports medicine clinic treating, amongst other things, injuries in elite and professional athletes. I am a member of the British Orthopaedic Sports Trauma Association (BOSTA) and the American Academy of Orthopaedic Surgeons.

I was a sports medicine consultant to the 2002 Commonwealth Games in Manchester and also provided cover to the 2001 World Police and Fire Games in Indianapolis. I was a medical consultant to the USA amateur boxing association and I am the orthopaedic surgeon to the Great British Olympic Wrestling squad.

My interests include keyhole surgery of the knee and ankle, ligament reconstructive knee surgery, cartilage transplantation in sports injuries and early arthritis and knee-cap surgery. In addition to sports surgery, I have a large practice in arthritis surgery and specialise in minimally invasive total and half knee replacements. My NHS practice involves lower limb and trauma surgery. I have set-up a dedicated knee rehabilitation and triage service in conjunction with specialist therapists, which includes biomechanical ligament assessment using a KT-1000, a tool not generally available in the UK.

I am an honorary clinical lecturer in orthopaedic and trauma surgery at the University of Manchester. I am also a national and international speaker on knee surgery and sports injuries. I have a number of ongoing research studies in various aspects of lower limb surgery. My research commitment has included supervision of post-graduate doctors undertaking higher degrees. I look after and work with many elite professional and international teams and athletes in various sports including rugby, football, netball and basketball.
