Professional profile

I graduated from Edinburgh Medical School in 1989 and following pre-registration jobs in Scotland took a short service commission in the army. I travelled widely with the forces and completed my basic surgical training. At this early stage of my career knee surgery was my main interest. I completed my orthopaedic training at the Robert Jones and Agnes Hunt Hospital, Oswestry and the district hospitals of North Wales.

In order to enhance my expertise in knee surgery I undertook a specialist knee fellowship in Adelaide, Australia. After which I travelled with the British Knee Society as a fellow, visiting centres in the USA, Europe and the UK. My training has always been focused on knee surgery, with a particular interest in arthroscopic surgery and the treatment of early arthritic problems. I have a particular interest in osteotomy around the knee and long term outcome studies of procedures performed. I also have a major interest in revision, total and unicompartmental knee replacement using minimal invasive techniques where possible.

Personal Profile

I have a young son at school in Chester and like to spend as much time as possible with him sailing the waters of North Wales indulging our shared love of all watersports.  In the winter I swap the water for the slopes and chase my son around on a snowboard.
