I then undertook sub-specialty fellowship training in hip and knee surgery at the Royal Orthopaedic Hospital, Birmingham for 18 months. 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 am a full-time consultant orthopaedic and trauma surgeon at University Hospitals Birmingham NHS Foundation Trust.
