About me

I was appointed as an Orthopaedic Knee and Shoulder Consultant Surgeon at the Royal Orthopaedic Hospital in 1993 and just over ten years later I established the Birmingham Knee and Shoulder Clinic at the Priory Hospital with Marcus Green and Samir Massoud.

In 2007 I transferred to full time private practice, but I maintain an Honorary NHS Contract at the Royal Orthopaedic Hospital and Honorary Clinical Lecturer at the University of Birmingham.

I am an established authority in Knee and Shoulder Surgery in the UK and a regular faculty member at National meetings; teaching at Regional Orthopaedic Training Programs: Oswestry, Sheffield, Leicester, Cardiff, Cambridge and Birmingham. I am also a regular demonstrator in Arthroscopic Surgery Workshops of the knee and shoulder for UK and overseas Consultant Orthopaedic Surgeons, having previously been a surgical tutor for the Royal College of Surgeons of England.

I am often invited as a guest speaker at Norwegian, Greek and Egyptian Orthopaedic Association Meetings and have published some thirty papers on knee and shoulder conditions, together with contributing book chapters on knee trauma and articular cartilage disease.

The development of the Birmingham Knee and Shoulder Clinic has been a long time ambition as it helps patients and referring practitioners to identify surgeons with subspecialty expertise.
