I Qualified from Liverpool Medical School in 1998 and started my career as a House Officer at the Royal Liverpool University Hospital. I worked as a Senior House Officer in the Mersey Deanery training in general, urological, plastics and neurosurgery prior to gaining my MRCS qualification. I moved to the Oswestry Training rotation as a Specialist Registrar in 2003 to complete my training in Orthopaedics. During this time I won 3 medals and the Programme Directors prizes for research and contribution to the teaching programme. Following this I spent a year in Sheffield as the 10th Cavendish Hip Fellow gaining experience in major reconstructive and revision lower limb surgery with Professor Ian Stockley. During this year I undertook important research in the field of infection at the Sheffield Hallam University and was awarded the Tom Smith research Cup by the Hospital and made an Honorary Clinical Lecturer for the School Of Health Sciences at Hallam University.
I have held a Consultant Surgeon post at The Robert Jones and Agnes Hunt Orthopaedic NHS Foundation Trust Hospital since September 2009. I have an entirely elective practice with a large teaching element to my job. I am a high volume fellowship trained arthroplasty surgeon performing 200 primary hip and 100 knee replacements and up to 50 revision surgeries per year.
