About me

I am a Consultant Orthopaedic Surgeon at The Royal Orthopaedic Hospital, which is 1 of only 5 purely Orthopaedic Hospitals in the country. I graduated from Edinburgh University and undertook my Registrar training in the Manchester region. After completion of my training, I spent 18 months on fellowship in North America. I spent 12 months in Halifax, Nova Scotia, undertaking a Sports Medicine fellowship at the Sports Medicine Clinic of Nova Scotia. I subsequently spent 6 months at the Holland Orthopaedic and Arthritic Centre in Toronto, gaining further experience in Shoulder and Knee surgery.

In 2008 I was awarded the British Elbow and Shoulder Society North American traveling fellowship. This enabled me to spend a further 4 weeks visiting some of the worlds foremost shoulder surgeons in major centers such as New York, Los Angeles, San Antonio and Houston.

I am a honorary Professor at Birmingham and Aston University where I supervise PhD students investigating the use of stem cells in cartilage repair, tendon regeneration and rehabilitation following injury. I have over 60 scientific publications in various International medical journals and have written 4 book chapters on knee and shoulder injuries. I have presented over 100 papers and regularly teach other Surgeons as a faculty member at various national and International meetings. In 2018 I was awarded the prestigious APKASS travelling fellowship by the European arthroscopy association, visiting leading surgeons in Australia and Asia

In 2006 I completed an MSc in Orthopaedic Engineering from Cardiff University. I have since designed my own fixation device for use in ACL reconstruction, which is currently in use world wide.

My interests include all aspects of shoulder surgery. In particular, arthroscopic procedures such as rotator cuff repair, shoulder stabilizations, capsular release for frozen shoulder and ACJ injuries. I also perform total and reverse shoulder replacement for arthritis of the shoulder.

I have a major interest in sporting injuries of the knee, including Anterior and Posterior cruciate ligament reconstruction, meniscal repair and patella dislocation.

I have particular expertise in cartilage repair and I am a committee member of the International Cartilage Repair Society. I treat all aspects of cartilage injuries using the full spectrum of cartilage regeneration techniques and cell therapies. I perform all associated reconstruction surgeries including Meniscal transplant and Osteotomy in an attempt to prevent and delay joint replacement. In cases of osteoarthritis where the knee can not be salvaged then I perform Unicondylar and Total knee replacement.
