About me

I completed my medical degree, including a bachelor of science degree in physiology at Guy’s, King’s and St. Thomas’ Medical School in London. I then trained in the South East during which time I graduated with a Masters degree in Trauma & Orthopaedics.

I am dual fellowship trained, initially in London working with world experts in foot and ankle surgery gaining experience of managing elite athletes, Premiership footballers and Olympians. I then undertook a further fellowship in Brighton focusing on lower limb and foot and ankle trauma including complex fractures, bone loss and bone infection cases.

My elective practice includes the full range of foot and ankle procedures including minimally invasive surgery (MIS) and arthroscopic surgery. I have a particular interest in treating sports injuries, plantar fasciitis and Achilles disorders.

My NHS practice is at the Major Trauma Centre in Brighton where I am the principle surgeon for foot and ankle trauma. I regularly accept complex referrals from throughout the South East region both for elective and trauma patients.

Outside of medicine I love snowboarding, particularly in the delightful Aosta Valley in Italy. In the summer I like to sail and dive whenever I get the chance.
