I grew up in Shropshire and attended Glasgow University. I have been a consultant orthopaedic surgeon in Hereford since 2003.
In Hereford I have developed a practice based on all forms of knee surgery and lower limb joint replacement.
I specialise in accelerated rehabilitation following knee and hip replacement and high function joints.
I offer a revision knee replacement service where I take failed knee replacements and treat. As part of this service I have done over 200 revision knee replacements.
I also perform arthroscopic knee surgery including ACL reconstruction and cartilage repair.
Areas of interest
Hip replacement surgery; Knee replacement surgery; Ligament reconstruction including anterior cruciate ligament; Arthroscopic Knee surgery; Lower limb arthroplasty; Revision knee surgery (orthopaedic); partial knee replacement; Accelerated rehabilitation.

Courses offered to GPs
I am very happy to talk on a number of orthopaedic subjects to GPs and have done so on many occasions. Recently I have attended several practices during their regular meetings in order to provide CPD
I am very proud of my outcomes. Arguably the most important measure of success following joint replacement being revision(failure) rates.
This data is recorded independently by the National Joint Registry.
Knees: I have 1082 Knee replacements recorded, (average surgeon 260) with a revision rate of 0.1% significantly better that the average rate of 0.5%(@1 year)
Hips: I have 834 Hip replacements recorded ,(average surgeon 260) with a revision rate of 0.3% again significantly better than the average rate of 0.8%(@1 year)
Other out comes such as patients knee and hip scores, infection and satisfaction are constantly being recorded and I am always happy to discuss them.
