Specialises in

I have been a Consultant Orthopaedic surgeon specialising in knee and hip surgery for over 10 years. My main area of interests are sports injuries of the knee and knee preservation surgery (surgery to prevent total knee replacement). I am a regional expert in patella (kneecap) stabilisation surgery and patellofemoral joint replacement. I have a keen interest in cartilage regeneration and repair, which started during my year at Imperial College, London.

I am skilled at knee and hip replacements as well as partial knee replacements. I practice evidence based medicine and always use implants based on their long term performance according to the National Joint Registry (NJR). I will also use the best bearing surfaces to ensure long term survival of the implants. I keep up-to-date with recent advances and I am proficient at implanting a fourth generation total knee replacement, which matches the movements of a normal knee. The uni-compartment knee (partial or half knee) that I use has the lowest revision rate and best long term survival according to the National Joint Registry (NJR). I am the regional expert in patello-femoral joint replacement and have performed over 100 patella stabilistaions for instability. I use a range of techniques to repair or regenerate articular cartilage, including micro-fracture, use of collagen matrix and autologous transplants.

Number of procedures to date: Total knee replacement 1,000; Partial knee replacement 250; Total hip replacement 500; Knee arthroscopy 1,600; Patello femoral joint replacements 25; Patella stabilisation 100.

I am Assistant Medical Director for the Division of Surgery at the James Paget University Hospital NHS Foundation Trust (JPUH). Previous to this post I was Clinical Lead for the Department of Trauma & Orthopaedics at JPUH.

I completed my higher surgical training in London before completing two specialist Fellowships in Adelaide and London.
