I completed my Orthopaedic training on the Southeast Themes training program rotating through Guy's and St Thomas' Hospitals. My fellowship was in knee surgery at the Royal Free and Wellington Hospitals under the supervision of George Dowd. I run an established busy elective adult lower limb practice in the NHS treating patients with hip, knee and foot/ankle pathologies.

I am fellowship trained in knee surgery and perform a wide variety of procedures around the knee including complex knee replacements and arthroscopic surgeries including anterior cruciate ligament reconstruction.

My current practice includes forefoot surgery, in particular complex forefoot reconstruction in Rheumatoid arthritis. I also have a special interest in ankle arthroscopy.
