My current practice embraces all aspects of conventional and minimally invasive/arthroscopic knee surgery.
I am particularly interested in sporting knee ligament injuries and regularly see both amateur and professional sportsmen with knee problems.
My recent research has included work on meniscus repair, posterior cruciate ligament injury and reconstruction of the anterior cruciate ligament.
Surgery for arthritis is a large segment of my work. I perform conventional total knee replacements, plus unicompartment knee replacement using a minimally invasive technique.
