I am a lower limb primary and revision arthroplasty Surgeon
I qualified from Bristol University Medical School in 1999 having also gained a BSc in Anatomical Science during my medical degree.
After house jobs, anatomy demonstrating and junior surgical jobs in Bristol and the South West I successfully completed my specialist registrar training in Wessex gaining FRCS (Tr&Orth) in 2008.
During my training I developed a passion for lower limb arthroplasty and in particular Hip Surgery. I was lucky enough to gain a fellowship in the World renowned unit in Exeter at the Princess Elizabeth Orthopaedic Centre. This unit is internationally known and renowned for the development of the extremely successful Exeter Hip, the most used cemented Hip replacement world wide. During my year in Exeter I was lucky enough to work with the highly skilled surgeons and wider team where I developed my skills in primary hip replacement surgery as well as revision procedures including the use of bone impaction grafting, a technique developed in Exeter and Nijmegen for reconstructing bone defects in revision cases.
Following my year in Exeter I spent six months at the Nuffield Orthopeadic centre in Oxford working in the Bone and Soft Tissue Tumour Unit where I gained experience in Tumour and reconstructive surgery. In addition, I was involved in Revision arthroplasty reconstructive techniques. Oxford has a Bone Infection unit and takes complex infected arthroplasty cases form the surrounding area. Whilst working in the NOC I developed an interest in Infected Arthroplasty management
I have worked in Portsmouth since September 2020 having previously been a consultant for 9 years in Chichester, Western Sussex.
I am an active member of the British Hip Society and am currently involved in the newly formed Culture and Diversity committee as well as working groups for revision hip complexity classification and guideline development in revision procedures.
I have been involved in education and the training of the next generation of surgeons since I started as a consultant in 2011 undertaking roles of surgical tutor as well as 5 years as a training programme director for Orthopaedic training.
I am also regularly invited to teach on educational arthroplasty courses
