I specialise in treating disorders of the foot and ankle including trauma and sports injuries.
I practice privately out of One Welbeck Health, Marylebone, where I am able to offer first class imaging including 3T MRI, Standing CT Scanning and dynamic ultrasound. Here I am the subspecialty lead and sit on the Board of Surgery. I also practice at King Edward VII's Hospital, Marylebone as part of The London Orthopaedic Clinic (TLOC) where we hold regular multidisciplinary meetings to discuss the treatment of the most challenging foot and ankle conditions.
My practice prioritises patient responsiveness and integrated care. I work collaboratively with a podiatrist, a rhematologist, musculoskeletal radiologists, sports doctors and pain specialists, often finding non-surgical solutions to the management of common foot and ankle conditions.
I am an NHS Consultant at The Royal London Hospital & Barts Health Orthopaedic Centre where I am the sub-specialty lead for foot and ankle surgery and run a fellowship programme.
I trained on the Royal National Orthopaedic Hospital rotation before I undertook advanced fellowship training in foot and ankle surgery focusing on arthroscopic ankle and hindfoot surgery. I have been a European Foot and Ankle Society travelling fellow and review manuscripts for publication in their journal. I am a recipient of the W.J. Little medal for foot and ankle research from Stanmore's Seddon Society and regularly collaborate and publish research into foot and ankle disorders from our foot and ankle unit at Barts Health NHS Trust.
I am passionate about teaching foot and ankle surgery and regularly participate as faculty on foot and ankle courses. I am a member of the British and European Foot and Ankle Societies as well as the British Orthopaedic Association.
