About me

I have been in post as consultant orthopaedic surgeon since 2002. My elective practice is predominantly in hip and knee surgery.
My hip practice includes primary, complex primary and revision hip replacement, including those with complex bone loss requiring custom implants, trabecular metal augmentation or impaction bone grafting. I perform about 130-150 hip replacements per year. I also offer hip arthroscopy for femoroacetabular impingement syndrome and I am a member of the British Hip Society.
My knee practice is mainly that of degenerative knee conditions, for which I have done over 400 knee replacements. I offer arthroscopy for meniscal pathology associated with mechanical symptoms and also see a large number of patients for non-surgical management.
My outcomes, as recorded on the National Joint Registry, are significantly better than expected. The statistics are complicated and can sound confusing, but in brief, the most recent report shows that, were I performing exactly as an average surgeon, I would have expected to have seen 12 of my knee and 40 of my hip replacements being revised, whereas in fact only 7 of my knee replacements and 27 of my hip replacements have been revised, the latter placing me on the upper 95th centile of the Standardised Revision Ratio charts.
In areas outside my immediate clinical practice, I have been an elected Trustee and member of Council of the British Orthopaedic Association (2014-16), as well as being a member of its Professional Practice Committee and Trauma Committee. I was Chairman of the British Orthopaedic Directors Society from 2010-12. I teach on Hip Arthroplasty Courses (Principles of Exeter Cementing Courses) and have been faculty for AO, the international Trauma group, since 2005, chairing their Principles of Fracture Management Courses from 2014-16. I was Clinical Lead of the Orthopaedic Department, Great Western Hospital, Swindon, from 2006-13 and currently I am Associate Medical Director for Planned Care, responsible for the management of all surgical and anaesthetic services in the Trust.
