MBChB, MRCS (Ed), FRCS (Orth), Cert Med Ed

I graduated from Liverpool University Medical School. After my House Job in The Royal Liverpool University Hospital I continued my Basic Surgical training in Merseyside encompassing all facets of surgery including plastics and neurosurgery. I undertook Specialist Orthopaedic training in the West Midlands based at the Robert Jones and Agnes Hunt Orthopaedic Hospital in Oswestry between. After this I trained for a year with Professor Ian Stockley in Sheffield as the 10th Cavendish Hip Fellow gaining expertise in complex revision hip and knee surgery as well as participating in research into treatment of infection in joint replacements. This work is still on-going in conjunction with Sheffield Hallam University where I am now an Honorary Lecturer.

I commenced my Consultant post as a lower limb arthroplasty surgeon at the Robert Jones and Agnes Hunt Orthopaedic Hospital in September 2009.

I have a hip and knee replacement practice performing over 250 primary (first time) and up to 50 revision (re-do) surgeries per year. I also perform arthroscopic knee and other day case surgery.

I have a particular interest in medical education which involves teaching of trainees at Core and Specialist level, Advanced Nurse Practitioners and General Practitioners at training days, advice leaflets and educational publications.

I am a member of the BMA and British Hip Society.

I have an NHS and private practice at RJAH and also see patients privately at The Nuffield Hospital in Shrewsbury.
