Professional profile

I am an experienced fellowship trained knee and hip surgeon specialising in both sports injuries and arthritis.

I have a particular interest in knee ligament surgery (anterior cruciate ligament), meniscal repair and cartilage regeneration, as well as knee preservation techniques (high tibial osteotomy), bespoke and robotic knee replacement surgery and minimally invasive total hip replacement surgery.

Since being appointed Consultant Orthopaedic Surgeon at Macclesfield District General Hospital I have built up a busy practice in lower limb surgery dealing with complex knee problems and am the lead surgeon for sports related knee injuries.

Following my graduation from University College London Medical School in 2000, I went on to complete my orthopaedic training in London at St Mary's Hospital, Charing Cross Hospital and Chelsea and Westminster Hospital where I undertook specialist fellowship training in sports knee surgery. At the prestigious University of Western Ontario in Canada, I was selected to undertake a year long fellowship in complex knee and hip joint replacement surgery.

My research interests include knee ligament reconstruction and outcomes following joint replacement surgery, which I have presented at national and international conferences. I have published numerous articles in renowned orthopaedic journals and have authored chapters in major orthopaedic textbooks. I am heavily involved in training the surgeons of the future.
