About me

My military training exposed me to many traumatic injuries in peace-time scenarios as well as ‘active’ areas such as Northern Ireland and the First Gulf War. I have always had an interest in the management of traumatic and elective conditions in the upper limb and now my current workload is exclusively in the management of such conditions from the elbow down to the wrist and hand, with a particular interest in the hand and wrist.

I have attended many wrist conferences and have had the privilege of some personal study with Richard Berger, Jorge Orbay and more recently with David Nelson in San Francisco.

Areas of interest

Elbow; Hand; Wrist
