About me

I was appointed as a Consultant Orthopaedic Surgeon at North Bristol NHS Trust in 2005. I have an elective and emergency trauma practice sub-specialising in shoulder and elbow surgery. My particular interests include open and arthroscopic shoulder surgery for conditions including rotator cuff tears, recurrent dislocations, shoulder arthritis and dislocated AC joints. I have experience of all types of shoulder replacement.

My undergraduate medical training was at St Mary's Hospital (Imperial College) in London (1988-1993). I spent six months as a World Orthopaedic Concern volunteer surgeon in rural South Africa during 1997-8. I undertook higher surgical training as a Specialist Registrar on the South West (North) rotation based in Bristol (1999-2005). My advanced surgical fellowship training for 1 year (2004) was at the Melbourne Shoulder and Elbow Clinic in Australia and the Cape Shoulder Institute in Cape Town, South Africa.

In 2006 I was awarded the Postgraduate Certificate of Medical Education from the University of Bristol and in 2008 became the postgraduate tutor for orthopaedic registrar teaching. For over 5 years from 2012 I was the Training Programme Director for the 60 strong registrar higher surgical training rotation for the Severn Deanery of Health Education England South West. Since 2015 I have been a member of the national selection design group for recruitment of orthopaedic trainees and in early 2017 I was appointed to the Specialty Advisory Committee for Trauma & Orthopaedic Surgery acting as the liaison member for the Republic of Ireland.

I am involved in regular audit and quality improvement projects as well as a variety of research projects leading to publications. Since 2012 I have chaired the South West and South Wales Shoulder & Elbow Group for case discussions and peer review.
