I was appointed as a Consultant Orthopaedic Surgeon at Hinchingbrooke Hospital, Huntingdon in 2013.I have an elective and emergency practice sub-specialising in the shoulder and elbow surgery. My particular interests include open and arthroscopic shoulder surgery for conditions including rotator cuff tears, recurrent instability and dislocated acromio-clavicular joints. I have experience of all types of shoulder replacement.

I did my basic medical training at Christian Medical College (1987-1993) in India. I spent 2 years working as a medical officer in rural mission hospitals in India (1993-1995). I undertook higher surgical training as a specialist registrar in Trauma & Orthopaedics at Christian Medical College, India (1995-1998).
