About me

Leading consultant orthopaedic surgeon with a wealth of experience in arthroscopic knee surgery, ligament reconstruction, all aspects of total knee and partial knee replacements, patella realignment, total hip replacements and revision knee and hip surgery.

Trained at St Bartholomew's Hospital Medical School and then went on to train under St Bart's Orthopaedic Training Program in 1978.

Spent a year in Toronto, Canada and trained under Dr Bob Jackson who introduced the arthroscopy procedure to North America in the late 1970's and early 1980's.

Appointed as Consultant Orthopaedic & Trauma Surgeon at St Helier NHS Hospital in 1984. Also operated at The South West London Elective Orthopaedic Centre at Epsom for five years; while also seeing private patients at St Anthony’s Hospital where I still consult and operate today.

My main interest is knee and hip surgery. I also have a particular interest in preventing infection in joint replacement surgery and the importance of pre operative preparation.
