I specialise in adult knee surgery for patients over 60 years, including knee ligament and cartilage injuries, knee instability and pain, and knee arthritis.

I graduated from Newcastle University School of Medicine in 2006, and quickly developed a passion for Orthopaedic Surgery. I undertook my junior medical and Higher Specialist Orthopaedic Training in the North East and Cumbria. Once I had completed registrar training, I undertook two Fellowships in Auckland, New Zealand, the first in all aspects of knee surgery, and the second focused on hip and knee replacement surgery.

I was appointed as a Consultant in Trauma and Orthopaedic Surgery at South Tyneside and Sunderland NHS Foundation trust in 2018.

I live with my wife and children in Newcastle, and enjoy spending time as a family enjoying the outdoors. We are keen hikers, cyclists and skiers, and more recently have been enjoying paddleboarding, kayaking and surfing all along Northumberland's fantastic coastline.
