Consultant Orthopaedic Surgeon

FRCS MSc (Oxon) BSc (Hons)

"Spire Tunbridge Wells Hospital provides a first class team and environment through which we provide excellent experience and outcomes for patients."

Specialises in

  • Hip surgery
  • Knee surgery

I am a Consultant Hip and Knee Surgeon practicing in Kent and East Sussex. I have been in clinical practice for 14 years and am an expert in the management of hip and knee conditions in adults.

My clinical practice comprises a range of hip and knee surgeries. This includes total and partial joint replacements, re-do (revision) surgeries for painful, problematic or infected joint replacements and joint preservation surgery. As a member of the orthopaedic trauma service in East Sussex, I provide specialist management for fractures around joint replacements.

I perform approximately 300 hip and knee joint replacements per year.

I am the clinical governance lead for the hip fracture service in East Sussex Healthcare Trust, one of the busiest services nationally.

In addition to my clinical work, I am a medical appraiser.

I am also a principle investigator on two national randomised control trials relating to hip replacements in trauma and total knee replacement techniques.

I studied and worked as a physiotherapist before a career in medicine. The knowledge and skills I gained during this time continue to benefit my clinical practice and has helped me cultivate a holistic, team-based approach to patient care.
