I am a Consultant Orthopaedic Surgeon specialising in degenerative and sports disorders of the hand, wrist, shoulder and elbow. As a purely upper limb specialist, I am able to offer a complete and individualised service utilising the latest techniques including arthroscopic surgery (keyhole) and wide-awake surgery.
I was appointed as a consultant in orthopaedics and trauma at University Hospitals Birmingham in 2019, and treat patients with both elective and traumatic orthopaedic conditions.
I graduated in medicine from Cambridge University in 2006 and have pursued my orthopaedic and specialist training in multiple distinguished specialist centres in the West Midlands and the UK. In 2018, I was awarded the prestigious British Orthopaedic Association overseas fellowship to attain further specialist skills in wrist arthroscopy and hand injury surgery in centres of excellence in Asia.
I offer a number of specialist treatments, including the latest wide-awake techniques for Dupuytren’s surgery, tendon reconstruction, nerve surgery and arthritis treatment. I also offer wrist and shoulder arthroscopy, solutions for sports injuries such as acromio-clavicular joint injuries and rotator cuff tears and management of tennis and golfer's elbow.
I am actively involved in clinical research and regularly publish scientific articles on the management of degenerative and sports injuries of the arm. I have been invited to present at a number of international conferences and teach regularly on specialist orthopaedic courses.

I firmly believe a healthy work-life balance improves an individual's wellbeing. I am a table tennis player, rock climber and enjoy playing the cello and guitar. These activities have also enabled me to gain a deeper understanding of the technical demands of keen sporting enthusiasts and musicians.
