About me

I was appointed as Consultant Orthopaedic Surgeon at The Mid Yorkshire Hospitals NHS Trust in January 2013. My specialist interests include the management of sports injuries, soft tissue knee reconstruction and lower limb joint replacement surgery, particularly in young adults. I am affiliated to a number of elite sports clubs in the Yorkshire region including Super League and Championship rugby league teams.

Between 2010 and 2012, I completed two highly specialist surgical fellowships which provided an excellent spring board into my consultant practice. The first was a superb, high volume fellowship in 2010 working with eminent surgeon Mr. Nick London in Harrogate. The second was a prestigious national fellowship at the Royal Derby Hospital, working alongside two internationally renowned surgeons: Mr. Tim Wilton (our current BOA president) and Mr. Guido Geutjens (Derby County Football, sports knee surgeon). During this valuable 2 years period of senior fellowship training, I completed over 1200 independent operations on the knee and hip.

In the year 2000, I graduated in the top 5% of the national cohort by gaining an honours degree in medicine and surgery. I then completed both basic and higher surgical training in Trauma and Orthopaedic Surgery within the Yorkshire region. In 2009 (at the age of 31) I became one of the youngest surgeons ever to pass the Royal College Fellowship examinations and my name was added to the GMC Specialist Register in 2011.
