I am a Consultant Hand and Wrist Surgeon my practice is focused entirely on hand and wrist. I see the full breadth of hand and wrist issues and I have a special interest in wrist problems. I have a significant proportion of patients who I treat following wrist fractures that have had problems since their injury. This includes rebreaking wrists that may have set in problematic positions, problems with plates and screws, carpal tunnel following a wrist fracture and tendon ruptures associated with their fracture (both operated on and conservatively managed).

I graduated from the University of Nottingham in 2002. I undertook a period of research with Professor Frank Burke in the Pulvertaft Hand Centre, along with clinical subspeciality training in Nottingham and Derby. I have successfully completed the British Post Graduate Diploma in Hand Surgery, awarded by the University of Manchester.

I was also the Nationally appointed Hand Fellow in Oxford at the Nuffield Orthopaedic Centre and John Radcliffe Hospital.
