Virtual consultations:

My elective practice initially comprised general orthopaedics with an interest in soft-tissue knee surgery, and while this has subsequently developed almost exclusively to knee surgery of all types, I continue to have a general trauma interest.

Having graduated from Newcastle University in 1981, I remained in the north east. There, I first undertook my basic surgical training, and subsequently, my orthopaedic and trauma training, before spending a year in Adelaide, South Australia, where I gained experience in knee ligament reconstruction surgery. I returned to the UK in 1993 to take up a consultant post in Durham, where I have remained since. From 2005, I have been lead clinician in trauma and orthopaedics at County Durham and the Darlington NHS Trust.

I have an interest in surgical education and am currently chair of the specialist training committee for trauma and orthopaedics. I'm also quality management lead in the School of Surgery in the Northern Deanery.

I am an examiner at MRCS level and also Regional Specialty College Adviser in trauma and orthopaedics.

My sporting interests outside of medicine include skiing, mountaineering, running and occasionally golf. I have an interest in history, art and travel, am an avid reader of both fiction and non-fiction and I am an enthusiastic cook, though more in the style of Keith Floyd than Heston Blumenthal!
