Having spent 15 years in Trauma and Elective Orthopaedic Surgery and performed over 8,000 operations, I am well versed in every conceivable condition and complication impacting the hip and knee.
My aim is to improve the quality of life for all of my patients by eliminating or reducing their pain, returning them to normal activities as much as possible and delaying the need for knee or hip replacement until absolutely necessary. When joint replacement is indicated, I aim to achieve optimal outcomes by using proven techniques and implants, with an emphasis on high levels of function long-term.
Areas of interest
Hip and knee replacement and revision hip replacement (lower limb arthroplasty); Knee arthroscopy; Knee surgery; Trauma; Hip and knee pain.
