I am a Consultant Orthopaedic Hand and Wrist Surgeon. I graduated from Imperial College School of Medicine, London in 2000. I completed my basic surgical training rotation at the Norfolk and Norwich University Hospital NHS Trust, where I was awarded the Mckee Orthopaedic research prize.

In my NHS practice at Epsom and St Helier Hospitals NHS Trust I received an award for delivering excellent patient care within the trust following recommendation by members of the public.
