About me

In 1991 I was appointed consultant orthopaedic surgeon at The Middlesex Hospital.
I am the head of elective surgery at Imperial College Healthcare NHS Trust and academic orthopaedic surgery at Imperial College London. I have pioneered computer-assisted and robotic surgery for 15 years. My department is at the centre of a revolution in orthopaedics, optimising hip and knee replacement function through accurate and precise 3D positioning. This involved educating surgeons from around the world and performing operations at Charing Cross and a newly opened centre for the analysis of problem metal-on-metal hip replacements.
As chair of Orthopaedics, and clinical lead at hospital, I lead a team of surgeons, investigators and educators training both under- and post-graduate students in surgical skills and the use of IC developed computer based and robotic technologies to improve outcomes.
I am advisor to the board of Stanmore Implants, a spinout from UCL. I am a civilian advisor in orthopaedics to the Royal Air Force and am Orthopaedic Surgeon to Her Majesty the Queen.
