I am a Consultant Orthopaedic Surgeon with a special interest in hip and knee surgery.
I went to Imperial College School of Medicine in London. My subsequent orthopaedic training was in the East Midlands Deanery in Leicester and Northamptonshire.
Following completion of my training, I spent 18 months undertaking further sub-specialist training with internationally renowned surgeons in Nottingham (Mr Andrew Manktelow and Mr Peter James) and in Coventry (Mr Tim Spalding).
In February 2016 I was appointed as a Consultant Orthopaedic Surgeon with a special interest in hip and knee surgery at City Hospital, Nottingham University Hospitals.
I perform a large number of hip and knee replacements - over 250 per year. I also have an interest in revision hip and knee replacements and the treatment of the young patient with an arthritic knee. I can offer treatments suitable for the younger patient including cartilage regeneration techniques, knee osteotomy, unicompartmental knee replacement and patello-femoral joint replacements where clinically appropriate.
I am actively involved in research into hip and knee surgery. I have published in respected orthopaedic journals and presented my work at international meetings and I also peer-review articles for the Bone and Joint Journal. I am one of the consultants responsible for running our East Midlands Specialist Orthopaedic Network meeting, and maintain a keen interest in monitoring the outcomes of surgery.
This experience ensures that I stay up to date and practice evidence based medicine – particularly important when choosing implants and when offering new treatments.
I also enjoy teaching and training, and regularly give lectures to medical students, doctors in training and allied health professionals.
