About me

I am a Consultant Orthopaedic Knee and Trauma Surgeon working in Bristol.

Having attended secondary school in Bristol and then medical school at Kings College London, I completed postgraduate training with the University of Swansea and the University of Bristol. I undertook specialist training at the Severn Deanery training programme. I was awarded Fellowship of the Royal College of Surgeons the European Fellowship exam in 2013.
I have been the beneficiary of some of the best surgeon training programmes in the world including fellowships in Canada, Australia and the United Kingdom. I was fortunate enough to be the most highly awarded fellow of his Canadian cohort receiving two fellowship prizes for best surgeon research. I am fully registered, having been awarded the Certificate of Completion of Specialist Training and is listed in the Specialist Register of the General Medical Council. I now trains new surgeons in the NHS.

Scope of practice:
I work with patients in the NHS and the private sector and regularly care for soft tissue and bone injury, sporting injuries and chronic disease. I performs surgery for various knee ligament injuries, including ACL rupture. I treat meniscal injuries, the knee's shock absorber, with repairs or partial excisions where required.
When damage to the joint surface is irreparable we can choose to undertake knee replacement surgery. This including total and partial knee replacements. It is important to use implants that are the most reliable, those that are followed by the national joint registry. I am very interested in enhanced recovery after surgery and have been developing the use of day case arthroplasty surgery for patients who are interested. We have been working with App developers to deliver an app that supports the patients experience of surgery.
Knee problems are very common, around 45% of the population will develop knee arthritis in their lifetime and more than 10% will undergo knee replacement. Although we undertake this surgery on a regular basis I appreciates that this is not a routine experience for you and will do the utmost to answer all of your questions.
