About me

I have a busy NHS practice based at University Hospital Ayr and a similarly busy private practice in Ayr and Glasgow. My inpatient work is mainly hip and knee replacements both primary and revision (or re-do) joint replacements. Day case work is primarily knee arthroscopy for cartilage damage and forefoot surgery.
My year of fellowship training in complex primary and revision surgery means I am well qualified to undertake all forms of lower limb joint replacement.
My management is "evidence based" which means I only offer treatments that I believe in and that are backed up by robust evidence.

Areas of interest

Revision surgery (orthopaedic); Lower limb arthroplasty; Hip Arthroplasty; Knee Arthroplasty; Knee surgery; Arthroscopy; Forefoot surgery including Hallux valgus (bunion) surgery.
