I am a consultant trauma and orthopaedic surgeon specialising in foot and ankle surgery. I have been practising in the South Tyneside region for over three years. I specialise in all aspects of foot and ankle surgery. I have a special interest in heel pain, and I regularly see patients with plantar fasciitis or Achilles tendinopathy. I also have an interest in sports injuries.

I obtained my medical degree and completed my higher training in London prior to undertaking a year long fellowship at the renowned Surrey Foot and Ankle fellowship.

I regularly undertake the following procedures: - Bunion correction (Hallux valgus correction) - Lesser toe deformity correction - Big toe surgery (cheilectomy, interpositional arthroplasty or fusion) - Neuroma surgery - Midfoot fusions - Hindfoot fusions - Ankle arthroscopy - Ankle fusion - Ligament and tendon surgery.

I am currently the clinical lead for clinical governance in my department. I am also the clinical lead for the management of neck of femur fractures in our hospital.

I have obtained a Masters degree in health science (trauma and orthopaedics) from the University of Warwick. I keep my clinical knowledge and skills up to date, by attending courses and conferences all over the world. I have presented topics of interest in such meetings in multiple occasions.

I am married with four children, which is a lot of fun! I like to spend as much of my free time with them. We enjoy walking out in the countryside and along the coast. We also enjoy travelling.
