I am a consultant orthopaedic surgeon with a special interest in shoulder and elbow, upper limb sports and trauma surgery. My skills include arthroscopic surgery for the shoulder and elbow and also shoulder replacement including reverse shoulder arthroplasty. I also have keen interest in hand and wrist surgery.
My interest in shoulders and upper limb surgery was honed at the internationally renowned Reading Shoulder Unit.
I studied medicine at St Bartholomew's Hospital Medical School, London (1990 - 1996) and undertook a BSc in Clinical Sciences at St Mary's Hospital, London (1995). I was appointed to the Stanmore Orthopaedic Training Programme in 2002. During this time I experienced various aspects of orthopaedics including peripheral nerve repair, paediatric orthopaedics and bone tumour surgery at Great Ormond Street Children's Hospital and the Royal National Orthopaedics Hospital.
I have published several scientific papers and book chapters. I also present at many national and international meetings and is heavily involved in teaching. I am a faculty member on various orthopaedic and shoulder courses.
I currently hold an NHS appointment at the Whittington Hospital.
My private practice is based at the Wellington Hospital, Highgate Hospital and Spire Bushey Hospital.
