About me

I am a Consultant Knee Surgeon at Stepping Hill Hospital, Stockport. My entire elective practice is devoted to knee surgery. I have over 15 years experience as a consultant. I undertake all aspects of knee surgery.

I have undertaken over 1000 total knee replacements, over 1000 anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) reconstructions and 5000 arthroscopic (Keyhole) knee operations.

Review of the National Joint Registry in February 2017 shows that my revision rate (rate of re-do) of a cemented Total Knee Replacement is 0.8% at 5 years (8 per 1000) compared to the national average of 2.2% (22 per 1000).
My revision rate for Unicompartmental (Partial) Knee Replacements is 6.7% at 5 years (67 per 1000) compared to the national average of 6.6% (66 per 1000)

There is a newly formed National Ligament Register that is looking at the outcomes of knee ligament reconstructions. I enter my patients onto this register and am awaiting their publication of results.
