"The minute I walked into the Spire hospital, I felt at home."

Specialises in

I am a dedicated Children's Orthopaedic Consultant in Southampton Children's Hospital.

I specialise in all aspects of paediatric trauma and orthopaedic surgery, with special interest in lower limb sports injury and neuromuscular limb pathology. I also focus my practice on deformity correction surgery of the child and adolescent.

My area of expertise has been constantly expanding and solidifying throughout the pandemic. Since the advent of my consultant post I have thrived in reaching out to my patients and never stopped helping them despite the hardships these last two years have brought to how we communicate.

In addition to my clinical work I also love doing charity work for Cerebral Palsy Sport and am acting BSCOS Webmaster and a member in the BSCOS Publicity committee.

I constantly visit Romania, my home country, to offer treatment for less privileged families.
