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

My clinical interest is in wrist injuries and in particular keyhole surgery of the wrist. I undertake all aspects of hand and wrist surgery.

I am a consultant orthopaedic surgeon with a clinical practice dedicated to treating patients with problems of the hand and wrist. I am also an NHS Consultant at Queen Alexandra Hospital in Portsmouth. There I combine a busy elective hand and wrist surgery practice with general orthopaedic trauma and I'm part of the on call rota at Queen Alexandra Hospital.

I graduated from Imperial College of Science, Technology and Medicine at St Mary's Hospital, London in 1998 and undertook higher surgical training in trauma and orthopaedic surgery in the Wessex Deanery. I subsequently undertook two UK based fellowships, firstly at The Hand Unit, Chelsea & Westminster Hospital in London and then at the prestigious Pulvertaft Hand Centre, Derby. During this time I won the BSSH Education prize and was also awarded the BSSH Travelling Fellowship.

Research interests: I have been published in many areas of orthopaedic surgery and this work has been presented at regional, national and international meetings. I continue to teach medical students, surgical trainees and consultants alike as a faculty member on courses both locally and nationally.

Personal Profile

Having represented my country at schoolboy rugby and played semi-professional rugby while a medical student, it was inevitable that I fulfilled the medical stereotype and became an orthopaedic surgeon. Now that my rugby playing days are over, I spend time with my wife and family encouraging my children in their own sporting activities. As an orthopaedic surgeon, my problem is that I am no good at golf.
