I was appointed consultant in 2013 after completing fellowships from London and Germany.
I specialise in complex Upper limb conditions including degenerative joint disease, sports injuries and tendinopathy. My current special interests include shoulder/ elbow arthritis, AC joint instability, and I have published extensively in the field of shoulder and knee surgery..
I have had some great patient feedback over the years and most patients appreciate not feeling rushed so they feel comfortable asking any questions they need to.

Current NHS consultant posts held
Consultant Orthopaedic surgeon, Central Manchester NHS Foundation Trust (CMFT).
Lead investigator of three randomised control trials that together recruited more than 400 patients. The trials were pivotal in establishing tranexamic acid as a cheap and safe option to reduce blood loss during hip and knee replacements, and to find ways of reducing pain after performing shoulder arthroscopy.
I love swimming, playing badminton and table tennis in my spare time.
I am a keen music enthusiast and like playing flute and guitar.
