I completed my higher surgical training in orthopaedics and trauma in March 2011 in the Yorkshire rotation based at Leeds. I then undertook sub-speciality fellowship training in hip and knee surgery with eminent orthopaedic surgeons at the Royal Orthopaedic Hospital, Birmingham.
I have also undertaken visiting fellowships in complex hip and knee surgery at the Mayo Clinic, Rochester, USA and Inselspital, Bern, Switzerland which are world famous institutions for highest quality of care and leading advances in medical research. I worked as a consultant orthopaedic and trauma surgeon on a fixed-term contract for nearly two years at Cambridge University Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust and Addenbrooke's Hospital, Cambridge prior to my current appointment.
I regularly attend national and international conferences to keep abreast of the latest advances in hip and knee surgery. I have presented papers in number of national and international meetings. I am a Honorary Senior Clinical Lecturer in Orthopaedics and Trauma at the University of Birmingham.
I have an active interest in teaching and training both undergraduates and postgraduates and I am invited as a faculty to teach on many clinical and academic courses.
