About me

I am a specialist Orthopaedic surgeon who exclusively performs hip and knee surgery, with particular interest in Sports Injury and Arthroscopy (key-hole surgery). This includes major knee ligament reconstructions such as Anterior and Posterior Cruciate Ligaments (ACL and PCL), hip arthroscopy, Femeroacetabular impingement (FAI), joint preservation, cartilage regeneration and dealing with tendon degeneration and tears.

I undertake modern Joint replacement surgery of Hip and Knee in patients with advanced arthritis where joint preservation is not possible. I offer Total and Partial replacement of the joints including computer navigation and shape-matched surgery.

The ethos of my practice is to provide high quality, patient-centred care while tailoring the treatment to each individual patient, based on the best available evidence, which may include surgical or non-operative treatment.

I completed my Basic Surgical and Specialist Training in Orthopaedic and Trauma surgery in the Newcastle-upon-Tyne Deanery where I was awarded the Kreibich Prize. I had the Fellowship in Orthopaedic and Trauma surgery bestowed by The Royal College of Surgeons of Edinburgh. I also gained a Master in Orthopaedics degree. In addition, I received MPhil Degree from the University of Cambridge where I read at the Darwin College.

As an adjunct to Orthopaedic specialisation, I gained my Sports Medicine qualifications from the Royal College of Surgeons of Edinburgh and was awarded the MacLeod's Medal for best performance.

Following completion of specialist training, I undertook two Fellowships at distinguished centres of Excellence. The first Fellowship was with Mr Richard Villar in Hip Arthroscopy in London, UK, learning the pioneering techniques in hip preservation surgery. The second Fellowship was at an Orthopaedic centre in Adelaide, Australia, which is world-renowned for treatment of Knee and Hip Arthroscopy, Sports Injury and Joint replacement. On my return I took up an NHS Consultant Post at the James Cook University Hospital, Teeside, before moving in to full-time independent practice joining The Villar Bajwa Practice.

Areas of interest

I teach and lecture nationally and internationally. I specialise in knee arthroscopy and ligament reconstruction, cartilage regeneration procedures in the hip and knee as well as sports injuries and ligaments and tendons. My current research interests include novel materials, ligaments regeneration, minimally invasive fracture fixation devices and techniques to aid rapid return to sports after injury.
