About me

For the last 20 years I have been a Consultant orthopaedic Surgeon at Guy’s & St. Thomas NHS Trust and for the last 15 years I have exclusively specialised in hand and upper limb problems. I was given the title of Associated Professor of Hand Surgery by the University of Linkoping – Sweden due to my extensive research and publications which extends more than two decades. I am also work abroad in the developing world for voluntary organisations. I am elected board member for the BOA Professional Practice Committee (PPC).
