About me

I am an upper limb consultant surgeon who specializes in treating shoulder, elbow and hand conditions, using ‘keyhole’ and ‘open’ surgical techniques. I was appointed as an upper limb consultant to the University Hospital Southampton in 2016.

I graduated from the University of Nottingham in 2003 and completed my specialist orthopaedic training in Hampshire and Oxfordshire. I was awarded specialist upper limb fellowships at the Nuffield Orthopaedic Hospital in Oxford and at the University Hospital Southampton.

I am a Fellow of the Royal College of Surgeons and member of the British Orthopaedic Society and British Elbow & Shoulder society.

I was have published over 30 peer-reviewed papers and am an author in internationally recognised medical textbooks. I was awarded a Medical Doctorate for research from Leeds University regarding work on mesenchymal stem cells. I am currently a reviewer for the Annals of the Royal College of Surgeons and primary investigator for national research trials.

I am the Trauma & Orthopaedic lead for undergraduate students at the University of Southampton and am passionate regarding the teaching of trauma care, which I have undertaken in the UK and Africa

In my spare time I enjoy running and spending time with my young family in the Hampshire countryside.
