I am a dedicated shoulder and elbow surgeon treating the full range of shoulder and elbow problems, including major trauma. In the NHS I am based at Imperial College Healthcare NHS Trust, one of London's four major trauma centres. I also work for the military which has given me unparalleled major trauma experience.
I am equally happy performing arthroscopic and open surgery dependent on the needs of the case and my background in semi-professional sport gives me a special insight into the treatment of sports injuries.
