I am currently working as a substantive consultant at Burton Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust since March 2017 with special interest in lower limb hip and knee, primary and revision arthroplasty (Joint replacement) surgery.
I have a vast 16-year orthopaedic clinical experience, including a fellowship in lower limb arthroplasty surgery, two postgraduate orthopaedic degrees and over five years of consultant level experience in the NHS. I have been doing independent lower limb arthroplasty for well over 7 years now. My NJR (National Joint Registry) consultant level report indicates more than the national average activity and well within the average for patient related outcomes.
I am proficient in performing various simple and complex trauma procedures including peri-articular (fractures around joints) and peri-prosthetic hip (fractures around prosthetic hip and knee) and knee fractures. During the last 13 years in the NHS I have not only honed my subspecialist skillset in trauma and lower limb primary and revision arthroplasty but also developed and maintained a strong track record in medical education, research with continual audit, quality improvement activity, peer-reviewed publications and national and international presentations.
Areas of interest
Hip replacement surgery (primary and revision); Knee replacement surgery (primary and revision); Arthroscopy of the knee excluding soft tissue reconstructive procedures.
