After graduating in Medicine in the UK I completed my Orthopaedic training here before travelling abroad for specialist training with international leaders in foot and ankle surgery. I worked in Dublin under Professor Stephens and then in the USA with Dr Mark Myerson before taking up a University hospital NHS post in Cardiff. I have a major interest in bunion surgery and also ankle sports injury management and am heavily involved in research and development in these areas. I have been one of the earliest surgeons performing minimally invasive surgery and teach other surgeons here in the UK and USA.
Areas of interest
Keyhole bunion surgery, minimally invasive surgery, bunions, ankle ligament injuries, ankle sports injuries.
Current NHS consultant posts held
