Professional profile

Having graduated from Glasgow University in 1991, I completed my Orthopaedic training in the West of Scotland, and was appointed as a Consultant Orthopaedic Surgeon with a special interest in Knee Surgery at Crosshouse Hospital in 2003.

My current practice covers most aspects of Knee Surgery. I have a special interest in Primary Knee Arthroplasty using Signature technology and in 2009 became the first surgeon in the UK to implant a knee using this system. I have continued to use this technology and to date (2011) have the most experience of this technique in the NHS in the UK.

Until recently, I was one of 2 Medical Officers for Kilmarnock Football Club, and still continue my support from the stands!
