I have a busy elective and trauma practice specialising in hip and knee replacement surgery and arthroscopic procedures.

I qualified from Guy's and St Thomas' Hospital, London in August 2000. I completed a basic surgical training incorporating neurosurgery, plastic surgery and critical care medicine, in addition to orthopaedic and general surgery, before entering the Wessex Orthopaedic Training Programme as a specialist registrar in 2006.

Following a one year international fellowship in lower limb arthroplasty, navigational arthroplasty and hip arthroscopy in Brisbane, Australia, I took the opportunity to work as a locum consultant in Cairns, Far North Queensland for six months, experiencing orthopaedics and trauma in the tropics.

I have worked as a Consultant Orthopaedic Surgeon at Queen Alexandra Hospital, Portsmouth since July 2013 and was appointed there to a substantive post in July 2014.

Research interests: Published and presented on lower limb orthopaedic topics at national and international meetings.

Taking steps to improve your health

My keen interest in sports include rowing, sailing and mountaineering, have taken a backseat recently due to my young family. Encouraging their interest in outdoor pursuits is a full time activity when not engaged in my clinical activities.
