Personal profile

I was born in Preston and I am proud of my Lancastrian roots. I was appointed as a Consultant Orthopaedic Hand & Wrist Surgeon with the Lancashire Teaching Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust in 2006. I am a keen sportsman and played representative cricket for my county as a teenager. I now play golf (badly) and enjoy mountain biking and walking.

I graduated from Sheffield Medical School in 1994. I undertook my Higher Surgical Training in Trauma & Orthopaedic Surgery with the Yorkshire Deanery. I have been fortunate to train under some of the top Hand Surgeons both in this country and the world. These have included Professor J Jupiter, Chief of Hand Surgery at Massachusetts General Hospital and Professor of Orthopaedic Surgery at Harvard Medical School, Professor J Stanley at Wrightington Hospital, Mr D Campbell, Consultant at St James University Hospital and Chairman of the AO International Hand Group, and Professor T Davis, Professor of Hand Surgery at Queens Medical Centre, Nottingham.

I cover the entire spectrum of orthopaedic Hand & Wrist disorders including joint replacement and Arthroscopic (Key Hole) surgery. In addition I undertake some elbow surgery including tennis & golfers elbow surgery, radial head replacement and ulnar nerve decompression.
