About me

I was appointed as a Consultant in Anaesthetics and Pain Medicine at Ninewells Hospital in 2010. In my Anaesthetic practice I routinely provide general or regional anaesthesia for patients undergoing Gynaecological, Plastic, General and Orthopaedic surgery.

I have a major interest in both Acute and Chronic pain management. I manage patients with a wide variety of acute pain problems in hospital and run a regular out-patient Pain clinic for the management of chronic pain. I run an interventional pain management theatre list and routinely perform a variety of spinal pain procedures including lumbar facet joint, sacra-iliac joint and epidural injections. I have a particular interest in minimally invasive techniques for the management of pain from hip and knee osteoarthritis.

I manage most forms of chronic pain. I believe early assessment and employing a holistic approach to treatment using physical, pharmacological and minimally invasive interventional approaches offers the best chance of a successful outcome.
