I studied medicine at Guy’s Hospital in London, graduating with the MBBS qualification and a BSc in Neuroscience. I undertook my specialist training in the East Midlands during which I acquired separate Masters and PHd degrees in Orthopaedic Sciences. I completed the prestigious National Fellowship in Paediatric Orthopaedics in Sheffield Children’s Hospital prior to starting as a Consultant in the University Hospitals of Leicester. I am currently Clinical lead for Children’s Orthopaedics. I have several publications in leading orthopaedic journals, have presented at national and international conferences, instruct on national courses as well as being awarded several research prizes. I frequently contribute instructional content to help international peers with clinical cases via online forums.
My clinical practice is focused on the care of children with orthopaedic conditions. I have a specific interest in improving the care and quality of life of children born with limb deformity. My practice encompasses:
Developmental hips dysplasia – I diagnose and treat hip dysplasia in babies based on ultrasound assessment. I undertake single stage hip reconstruction in the treatment of late presenting hip dislocation in children of walking age and see referrals from across the East Midlands. I have extensive experience of treating dysplasia (hip shallowness) in children under the age of 8 years.
Painful feet in children – I use a step wise treatment approach to painful flat feet and arched feet encompassing physiotherapy, orthotics and surgery. I practice “a la carte” foot surgery to correct significant symptomatic deformity. I have extensive experience of treating children with recurrent or residual deformity following treatment of their clubfeet.
Limb deformity and shortening – I undertake image based deformity analysis to determine lower limb alignment problems causing pain. Children are treated with guided growth to correct angular leg deformities whilst growing. I undertake circular frame treatment for complex deformities and limb lengthening.
Hip disorders in Cerebral Palsy – I undertake hip reconstruction in children with cerebral palsy to improve their sitting posture, spine alignment, comfort and assist the caregiver in washing and dressing the child.
Walking disorders in Cerebral Palsy – I sit on the regional Gait Laboratory multi disciplinary team meeting to review instrumented analysis utilising the latest technology to diagnose gait disorders. I undertake guided single event multi level surgery (SEMLS) to optimize the walking ability of children with cerebral palsy.
