I specialise in knee and hip surgery, including knee ligament and cartilage injuries, knee instability and pain, and hip and knee arthritis.
I graduated from Newcastle University School of Medicine in 2006, and quickly developed a passion for Orthopaedic Surgery. In undertook my junior medical and Higher Specialist Orthopaedic Training in the North East and Cumbria.
