Treatment restrictions due to coronavirus (COVID-19)

As part of our longstanding relationship, we are proud to be dedicating our resources to the NHS at this important time. As a result many of our treatments are currently suspended and we are reviewing all planned procedures and consultations. We are making every effort to talk to impacted patients and apologise for any inconvenience this may cause.

Professional profile

I have training and experience in cemented and cementless hip replacement techniques and use both in my arthroplasty.

I use a variety of replacement types, tailored to the individual patient's needs. These include ceramic bearing surfaces for younger and more active patients as well as metal on metal resurfacing which can allow a return to sporting activities.

I qualified from Birmingham University in 1989 and carried out my basic surgical training in Birmingham as well as a Master's degree in the surgery of trauma. I moved to Glasgow in 1996 for higher surgical training on the West of Scotland orthopaedic rotation.

I have completed a year's fellowship in Wellington, New Zealand in 2002, with specialist training in lower limb joint replacement and revision.
