Professional profile

I was appointed as a consultant in Trauma and Orthopaedics with a specialist interest in the Shoulder and Elbow at the Norfolk and Norwich University Hospital in August 2015. I successfully completed my higher surgical training on the East of England which included two years at the Norfolk and Norwich University Hospital. I then completed a comprehensive shoulder and elbow fellowship at the world renowned Wrightington Hospital.

I have further augmented my training with several visitations to European centre of excellence in Germany, Switzerland and Spain.

I have a specialist interest in surgery to the shoulder and elbow. The majority of my shoulder surgery is performed arthroscopically (keyhole) which allows a quicker rehabilitation. This includes repairs to the tendons of the shoulder (Rotator Cuff), arthroscopic release for frozen shoulder and arthroscopic stabilisation procedures. I also perform high volumes of shoulder replacements. I provide a full range of elbow surgery including the surgical management of arthritis of the elbow, tennis/golfers elbow and surgery on the ulnar nerve. My practice also includes a significant volume of trauma. I also therefore provide a specialist upper limb trauma service. This includes the management of both fractures and ligaments around the shoulder, elbow and forearm.

I perform approximately 400 arthroscopic shoulder surgeries each year across both my NHS and Private practice.
