About

With increasing specialisation in Sports and Orthopaedic surgery it is impossible to keep up to date with all aspects of the field.

Most specialists are very good at certain joints and my areas of expertise are Knee surgery, Hip surgery and Shoulder surgery.

I have done fellowships to train specifically in all aspects of these joints, have Consultant level clinical experience of 19 years honing my skills and made relentless efforts to keep up to date, to ensure I offer the best treatment for my patients, which is up to date.
