About me

As a specialist knee surgeon, I treat all aspects of knee surgery and perform over 350 knee operations per year. During my training, I received extensive specialist training from 3 intensive Fellowships, 2 in the UK (Derby & Nottingham) and 1 in Adelaide, Australia. Whilst in Adelaide, I worked for 2 world leading surgeons who were involved in designing knee replacements and pioneering computer-assisted joint replacement.

My clinical research interests include arthroscopic surgery, knee ligament reconstruction, partial knee replacement, total knee replacement, revision knee replacement, patella disorders, adolescent knee problems, cartilage resurfacing techniques and treatment of knee arthritis in young and active patients.

I am heavily involved in research, with over 40 papers in peer reviewed journals and over 50 national and international presentations. I am a reviewer for "The Knee" journal and the American Journal of Sports Medicine.
