Professional profile

I am a Consultant Hand and Wrist Surgeon working primarily in the Pulvertaft Hand Centre in Derby. 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 was also the Nationally appointed Hand Fellow in Oxford at the Nuffield Orthopaedic Centre and John Radcliffe Hospital.

My practice is entirely hand and wrist with no general orthopaedic commitments. I see the full breadth of hand and wrist problems but have a special interest in wrist problems and 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 have successfully completed the British Post Graduate Diploma in Hand Surgery, awarded by the University of Manchester.

Clinical Interests

Hand surgery
Wrist surgery

I have an interest in minimally invasive techniques including needle aponeurotomy and collagenase for Dupuytrens disease and endoscopic (keyhole) carpal and cubital tunnel releases / decompressions. I also undertake wrist arthroscopy and where indicated, other joints of the hand.
