About me

My practice is entirely sports injuries and trauma, but this includes caring for the musculoskeletal problems of active people of all ages. I do not do any joint replacements at all so that I can specialise and improve the treatments which I can offer. The majority of my work is minimally invasive surgery of the knee, shoulder and ankle for problems of joint instability, ligament and cartilage problems and joint surface defects. The common condition treated in the knee are cartilage (meniscus) tears and ligament injuries, especially anterior cruciate (ACL), in the shoulder, dislocations and subluxations of the shoulder and acromioclavicular (ACJ) joint as well as pain in the throwing athlete. In the ankle, as well as tendonitis, arthroscopy is useful for sprains and ligament tears, loose bodies and footballers’ “spurs”.I train junior doctors in the examination, assessment and management of these conditions.

I have treated elite & professional sportsmen since 1999 from numerous clubs & associations including seven Premiership football & eight rugby Superleague teams. I have also treated participants in a large number of other sports including the England rugby union team & Olympic athletes. Increasingly, we are seeing athletes referred to us from abroad. The experience gained in treating elite athletes is helping us find the best treatments for sports enthusiasts of all ages and abilities.
