My NHS practice is at the Buckinghamshire Trust. I am also an Honorary Associate Professor at the St. George's School of Medicine, Granada; Associate Editor for the International Journal of Orthopaedic Sciences and I have been a reviewer for The Bone & Joint Journal since 2012.
After obtaining the primary medical degree and Master of Science degree in Orthopaedics, I carried out a clinical research fellowship at the Royal National Orthopaedic Hospital, Stanmmore. During this period, I developed a special interest in novel procedures to repair joint cartilage and cartilage implantation technique.

Subsequently, I undertook subspecialty training by doing several reputable fellowships including the Lower Limb Fellowship (Royal National Orthopaedic Hospital), British Orthopaedic Association's Transitional Fellowship in hip and knee surgery (Wycombe and Royal National Orthopaedic Hospital), AO Foundation’s Trauma Travelling Fellowship (University Clinic Muenster, Germany) and the Trauma Fellowship at St Mary’s Major Trauma Centre in London.
