I am an upper limb consultant surgeon who specialises in treating shoulder, elbow and hand conditions, using ‘keyhole’ and ‘open’ surgical techniques.
I was appointed to the University of Southampton Foundation Trust in 2016, where I offer a tertiary referral service to the surrounding regions. My surgical passion is arthroscopic surgery and I am currently working on combining this with my research passion of stem cells.
I specialise in upper limb surgery.

Elbow: Tennis/Golfers elbow, ulnar nerve compression, elbow arthritis including arthroscopy/replacement, complex elbow trauma.
