Professional profile

I trained at the University of Cambridge and Royal Free Hospital London. I undertook my orthopaedic training in the West Midlands including 18 months specialising in upper limb surgery at the Hand and Upper Limb Unit in Oswestry

In 2011 I undertook specialist hand surgery training on the 12 month Advanced Training Post. in Hand Surgery Fellowship in Manchester, where I gained considerable experience in microsurgery and plastic surgery of the hand and was awarded the British Hand Diploma (BSSH and University of Manchester). I completed my training with a further 12 month Upper Limb Fellowship in shoulder, elbow and hand surgery at the Wrightington Hospital Upper Limb Unit in 2013. I was appointed a Consultant Orthopaedic and Upper Limb Surgeon at the Wrexham Maelor Hospital, North Wales in February 2013. My interests include carpal tunnel syndrome, peripheral nerve surgery, Dupuytren's disease, trigger finger, fracture surgery, osteoarthritis, nerve and tendon injuries, wrist surgery, shoulder surgery, keyhole surgery, arthroscopy, rotator cuff tears and subacromial impingement.

I am committed to maintaining surgical excellence and to training and am a clinical and educational supervisor for trainee orthopaedic surgeons in Wrexham. I also teach and lecture regularly on the upper limb courses in Oswestry.
