I am a hand and wrist surgery specialist with a reputation for delivering outstanding patient care. I treat various common pathologies including: carpal tunnel syndrome, trigger finger, Dupuytren's Contracture, De Quervain's tenosynovitis, arthritis of the hand and wrist, ganglion, hand injuries, wrist injuries, scaphoid problems, cubital tunnel syndrome, tennis elbow and golfer's elbow.

I carry out 450 elective hand and wrist procedures a year and 150 emergency/trauma hand and wrist procedures a year.

I am a member of the British Medical Association, the General Medical Council, and the Royal College of Surgeons of England. Following recommendation by members of the public, I was awarded three gold patient care awards at Epsom and St Helier University Hospitals for my consistent delivery of excellent patient care.

After graduating from Imperial College School of Medicine, London in 2000, I completed my Trauma and Orthopaedic specialist registrar training on the London Southwest Thames rotation. I then completed two prestigious hand surgery fellowships. The first was in hand and wrist surgery at the Chelsea & Westminster Hospital, London. The second took place at the world renowned Ganga Hospital in Coimbatore, India, where I specialised in hand surgery and reconstructive microsurgery. My NHS practice is at Epsom and St Helier University Hospitals NHS trust where I am Clinical Lead of the Trauma and Orthopaedic department and I continue to serve the community of London and Surrey as a hand and wrist surgeon, successfully treating patients, adults and children, with all types of hand and wrist conditions and injuries.

I am an educational and clinical supervisor for specialist trainees in trauma and orthopaedics who work within Epsom and St Helier University Hospitals NHS Trust.
