I have been an Orthopaedic consultant in Cardiff since 2008. I specialise in Hip and Knee surgery. I did Orthopaedic training in Leeds and fellowship training in hip and knee surgery from the Massachusetts General Hospital, Boston, USA which is part of the Harvard Orthopaedic Program.
I currently do over 200 hip and knee replacements every year in addition to knee arthroscopy. I specialise in all aspects of hip and knee replacement surgery including computer navigated surgery, patient specific knee replacements and complex revision surgery.
