I am a Consultant Trauma and Orthopaedic Surgeon. I completed my specialist training in the UK including knee fellowship posts in the UK and in Melbourne, Australia. My NHS practice is based at the MidYorkshire Hospitals NHS Trust where I have been a full time Consultant since 2005. I specialise in knee surgery, including arthroplasty and soft tissue reconstruction and have a particular interest in managing problems with the 'younger knee'. I participate in the trauma 'on call' rota and manage a wide range of fractures and soft tissue injuries. My private practice is based at Spire Methley Park Hospital where I offer a wide range of procedures including arthroscopy, soft tissue reconstruction including anterior cruciate and collateral ligament reconstruction, osteotomy, patellofemoral stabilisation procedures and total knee replacement.
