Personal profile

I am the most senior of the full-time surgeons in Morecambe Bay Health Trust. I have extensive experience in hip trauma, primary and revision hip surgery, primary and revision knee replacement surgery, knee arthroscopic surgery, knee cruciate ligament reconstruction surgery, knee sports injury, including meniscal repair and chondral defect surgery and knee joint preserving osteotomy surgery.

I have over 20 years of experience as a Consultant surgeon at Royal Lancaster Infirmary, Westmorland General Hospital and The BMI Lancaster Hospital.

Along with my NHS work I conduct private consultations for insured and self-pay patients at The BMI Lancaster Hospital, where I also regularly operate.

I have exceptionally low levels of complications for infections and revision of primary joint replacements of hip and knee, of which I have done over two thousand cases, reflected in my position in the National Joint Register data results and only uses 10A rated prostheses.

I understand the importance of follow-up and have an open-door policy for post-operative patients, I am known for my compassion and understanding with my patients.

I am involved in teaching medical students, junior doctors and orthopaedic trainees, giving lectures to Consultants at local and regional level. I have set up a knee joint preserving osteotomy service within the Morecambe Bay Trust and have ongoing research into hip fracture treatment.
