I am an Orthopaedic Surgeon specialising in hips and knees, including hip replacement surgery, hip revision, knee replacement surgery, knee revision and knee arthroscopy.
I qualified as a doctor from Barcelona Medical School and came over to the UK in 1993. My Basic Surgical Training and subsequent Specialist Registrar Training were all in the UK.
Before I became a Consultant I did a Fellowship in primary and revision hip and knee replacement at the Nuffield Orthopaedic Centre in Oxford.
In 2003 I was appointed Consultant Orthopaedic Surgeon to University Hospitals Coventry and Warwickshire NHS Trust.
I am also a Honorary Associate Clinical Professor at the University of Warwick.
I am involved several research projects in relation to hip and knee replacement surgery and teach regularly at national and international meetings on these subjects.
As a high volume and experienced hip and knee revision surgeon I regularly get patients referred to me by other orthopaedic colleagues working in the region asking for a second opinion and on occasions asking for me to take over the care of patients with challenging complications
