I have over 20 years' experience as a consultant orthopaedic surgeon. I trained in Manchester and subsequently in Wrightington Hip Unit, Boston USA and the Mayo Clinic USA. I was awarded the Charnley Prize for research into Hip Replacement. I am one of the most experienced hip and knee replacement surgeons in the UK, having inserted several thousand hip and knee replacements plus approximately 100 hip resurfacing arthroplasties (Birmingham Hip). I am a recognised specialist in bone tumour surgery, and a former president of the British Orthopaedic Oncology Society.

I am recognised as having a very low complication rate and only advising surgery where it is really necessary. I am one of the UK’s most experienced joint replacement and tumour surgeons, and a member of the ROH Bone Tumour Service and the author of several book chapters on bone tumours, both primary and secondary. I am chair and senior author of the UK national guidelines on the management of metastatic bone disease.
