Professional profile

I have been a consultant surgeon since 2013, specialising in shoulder & elbow surgery. My practice encompasses the use of arthroscopic, ("keyhole"), surgery about the shoulder as well as shoulder arthroplasty, ("joint replacement"), work.

I specialise in shoulder & elbow surgery, but I have a particular interest in arthroscopic shoulder reconstruction surgery, shoulder arthroplasty & complex upper limb trauma surgery.

I have a broad experience of arthroscopic shoulder surgery techniques, with many hundreds of such cases performed encompassing cases of impingement, rotator cuff disease & shoulder dislocations, amongst others. I also have an interest in shoulder arthroplasty surgery & spent a fellowship year in New South Wales, Australia, learning contemporary techniques in shoulder replacement surgery including cementless arthroplasty & "reverse polarity" shoulder replacements for both trauma & rotator cuff deficient shoulder osteoarthritis.

I am very interested in medical education and in addition to my clinical work, I am proud to be able to lead undergraduate education in the field of musculoskeletal medicine for the trauma & orthopaedic department at CHS. I also run an education programme involving lectures around the theme of shoulder surgery which I have delivered to postgraduate orthopaedic surgeons & other allied healthcare specialists. I have edited a chapter of work on shoulder & elbow surgery for an FRCS tr. & orth. textbook & am also regularly involved in teaching & viva work at FRCS tr. & orth. level in the region.

Personal Profile

I enjoy spending time with my wife & young children. As they get a little older, they are able to enjoy the beautiful area in which we are fortunate enough to live. If I have any spare energy, I still enjoy running, albeit a little slower than in years gone by.
