About me

I trained at Cambridge followed by Charing Cross Hospital where I qualified in 1985. I was appointed to Maidstone and Tunbridge Wells trust in 1996 initially at Maidstone Hospital and then at Tunbridge Wells Hospital. I now work as a purely independent Consultant who specialises in soft tissue knee surgery carrying out arthroscopy and and anterior cruciate ligament reconstruction which is my main interest. My private practice covers Kent based at the Kent Institute for Medicine and Surgery in Maidstone, the Spire Alexandra Hospital in Chatham and One Ashford Hospital in Ashford, Kent.

Simon prides himself on communication. He believes that listening, explaining knee problems in understandable terms and ensuring that patients have all the information needed to make their own management decisions is essential. Simon has a very simple but important mission statement "I give the same quality of care to my patients as I would want my family and friends to receive". Simon has been awarded a certificate of excellence for patient care in 2018 by for the quality of his patient care.
