I completed my higher surgical training in the North East of England and I spent an additional 18 months of fellowship speciality training in New Zealand; this helped me gain invaluable experience in shoulder, elbow and hand surgery, particularly in the fields of sports injuries and rehabilitation, together with upper limb reconstructions and joint replacements.
I relocated to the South East from Newcastle upon Tyne, where I had been a Consultant for 6 years, from 2006 to July 2012, specialising in surgeries of the hand and wrist, and shoulder and elbow; my practice also included general orthopaedic and trauma surgery.
My previous private practice was based at Spire Washington Hospital and I am now currently based at the Spire Montefiore Hospital in Hove and the Nuffield Health Brighton Hospital.
