Professional profile

After graduating from Cambridge in 1991, I trained in trauma and orthopaedic surgery in Oxford, Cambridge and Norwich. In 2000 I obtained a Master of Surgery (MChir) degree, submitting a thesis on the causes of loosening of joint replacements. In 2002 I spent a year in Adelaide, South Australia, specialising in revision hip surgery, before being appointed as a Consultant in Norwich in 2003.

In 2007 I was awarded the British & American Hip Societies Travelling Fellowship, visiting specialist hip surgery units throughout North America.

My main interest is in hip and knee replacement surgery, including revision operations.
