I am a Consultant Orthopaedic and Sports Medicine Surgeon and an Honorary Professor at the University of Bolton. My interests include keyhole surgery of the knee, 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 less invasive total and half knee replacements, together with using advanced contemporary non-surgical arthritis treatments including stem cell injections. I also regularly undertake less invasive robotic arm assisted MAKO knee replacement surgery, having undertaken the first procedure in the North-West.

I trained in London and Manchester, following which I worked in the USA for a year at a prestigious sports medicine clinic. I was a Sports Medicine Consultant to the 2002 Commonwealth Games in Manchester and provided cover to the 2001 World Police and Fire Games in Indianapolis. I was also a Medical Consultant to the USA Amateur Boxing Association. I have been the Orthopaedic Surgeon to the Great British Olympic Wrestling squad. I look after and work with m any elite, professional and international teams and athletes in various sports including rugby, football, netball, and basketball.

My NHS practice (Salford Royal Hospital — University of Manchester Teaching Hospital) 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 a member of the British Orthopaedic Sports Trauma Association (BOSTA) and the American Academy of Orthopaedic Surgeons.

I am an Honorary Senior Lecturer in Orthopedic 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 postgraduate doctors undertaking higher degrees. I also regularly supervise medical students, sports rehab students and international medical students and Fellows.
