About me

COVID PANDEMIC- I am continuing to practice during this period and offering telephone or video consultations to minimise risk, especially in patients who have medical conditions which may stop them from attending appointments face to face. In some circumstances it is necessary to meet in person and in this case all necessary precautions will be put in place. I continue to update my practice according to national guidelines to ensure I keep my patients as safe as possible.

I qualified in Medicine from Glasgow University in 1994 and worked in teaching hospitals in Glasgow until 1996 when I gained a place on the highly competitive surgical training rotation at University College Hospital and Great Ormond Street Hospital

I decided on a career in Trauma and Orthopaedics and moved to the Royal National Orthopaedic Hospital in Stanmore for my final junior doctor job. Subsequently I won a place on the North Thames Higher Surgical Training Rotation to subspecialise in Trauma and Orthopaedics. This is a 6 year program culminating in qualification as a fully trained consultant. I was privileged to work a a number of fantastic institutions including a return to the Royal National Orthopaedic Hospital in Stanmore as a Registrar, The Royal London Hospital and several hospitals in the East of England including Southend Hospital.

As part of this higher surgical training we have an opportunity to travel to other hospitals worldwide to gain as wide a range of experience and bring new techniques back to the UK. Many orthopaedic developments have originated in the UK so trainee Consultants are welcomed worldwide by the community. I won a fellowship sponsored by the Australian Orthopaedic Association at The Alfred Hospital in Melbourne, Australia where I worked in the state regional Trauma Centre, furthering my experience in trauma, hip and knee surgery.

During my final placement at the Royal London Hospital a job became available at Southend Hospital where I had enjoyed a rewarding year as a registrar (and happened to be where I lived with my now wife who originates from here). As a water and wind sport enthusiast it offered a happy combination of professional and personal interests as well as pleasing my wife immensely.

Following a successful interview I was appointed a Consultant in Southend in 2005 with a special interest in sports injuries, hip and knee problems, arthroscopic (keyhole) surgery and hip and knee replacement.

I have been instrumental in developing services at Southend and introducing new techniques such as minimally invasive ligament repairs and reconstruction, joint replacements in younger patients, hip resurfacing, customised knee replacements and hip arthroscopy.

I have trained in robotic assisted knee surgery and look forward to developing this new technique in my practice as I believe it will give better outcomes for patients.
