I am a specialist lower limb orthopaedic surgeon with a particular interest in hip and knee replacement surgery and lower limb trauma, with a particular emphasis on people with osteoporosis. I have developed an expertise with many types of hip and knee replacement designs and am well placed to offer the most appropriate design to my patients. This includes gender-specific knee implants and the use of advanced bearings including ceramics, which are hoped to last considerably longer than traditional designs.

I qualified from University College London Medical School in 1999. A year later, I moved to Wessex and began my specialist training. I was appointed a consultant at Southampton General Hospital in 2012. Before taking up this post, I undertook three fellowships. The first was as a senior hip and knee fellow in Sydney with the Specialist Orthopaedic Group, one of the most prestigious joint replacement fellowships offered to visiting surgeons. Two further fellowships followed in Southampton, concentrating on complex hip and knee replacement surgery. I have a doctorate of medicine in the use of stem cells in complex orthopaedic surgery.

I employ a multidisciplinary approach to hip and knee surgery and believe, passionately, that the combination of patients taking an active role in the decision making process together with dedicated nurses, therapists and anaesthetists improve outcomes.
