About me

I qualified from the University of Wales College of Medicine and undertook junior medical training in South Wales.

I undertook orthopaedic specialist training in Bath and the Wessex region.

I have completed a specialist fellowship in upper limb surgery at the biggest upper limb centre in Canada.

I have also undertaken additional training at the Mayo clinic in the USA.

I was appointed as a Consultant in Trauma and Orthopaedics in 2008.

I have a keen interest in teaching at all levels. This includes medical students and junior doctors as well as training orthopaedic consultants and GPs on specialist courses.I am Orthopaedic Lead clinical tutor for Keele Medical School and am an honary clinical lecturer for Keele Medical School.
I have received excellent feedback on my teaching.

I have learnt how to explain complex matters in very simple terms which help patients understand their condition.

I take time to ensure that all the patients questions are answered to their satisfaction.

I am trained in open and keyhole (minimally invasive) surgery to the shoulder, elbow, hand and wrist.

I will always try non-operative treatments first and successfully treated many patients without surgery.
