i have been working as a Consultant Orthopaedic Surgeon in Northumbria NHS Trust and Private Practice since 1998. I have particular interest in hip and knee joint replacement and revision (re-do joint replacement) surgery, knee and hip arthroscopy and arthroscopic hip impingement surgery. I perform approximately 200 primary hip and knee replacements, 50 revision joint replacements and 60 hip arthroscopies each year.

I am a graduate of Newcastle upon Tyne Medical School, and trained in Newcastle based Registrar rotation and London, Ontario, Canada, sub-specialising in Hip and Knee surgery.
