About me

I qualified from St. Thomas's Hospital in 1989 and had surgical training in Oxford and London before moving to Cambridge for Orthopaedic training in East Anglia. I returned to Oxford for specialist training in the Hand and was first appointed to a consultant post at Heath Road Hospital, Ipswich in the year 2000. I was appointed to the staff at Addenbrooke's Hospital as a Consultant Hand Surgeon in 2005.

I undertook postgraduate research in Oxford, for which I was awarded an MSc, and I have research papers published on wound healing, scaphoid fractures and carpal tunnel syndrome surgery.

I am reviewer for scientific articles submitted to the Journal of Hand Surgery, European Volume and I am on the Editorial Board for that Journal.

I enjoy teaching and teach Medical Students and Junior Doctors and give lectures on Regional, National and International courses.

I am on the Specialist Register of the General Medical Council and am a Fellow of the Royal College of Surgeons of England. I am also a Member of the British Society for Surgery of the Hand.
In addition to having qualifications as a Hand Surgeon I have an interest in all conditions and injuries affecting the Hand and Wrist, whether they require surgery or require non-surgical treatment. In that respect, I am both a Hand Doctor and a Hand Surgeon and, therefore, I am a Hand Specialist.

I also give medicolegal advice for Hand and Wrist conditions and injuries.
