I am a consultant orthopaedic surgeon who specialises in shoulder and upper limb (including elbow, hand and wrist) surgery. I treat all aspects of the upper limb involving elective and degenerative conditions, sport injuries and trauma, including fractures.
As a shoulder and upper limb specialist, my aim is to ensure that the patient has the correct diagnosis and receive the appropriate management. It is important to ensure that your pain is treated swiftly and function is restored so that you can return to all your daily activities, work and hobbies as soon as possible.
I treat each patient as an individual and ensure that I tailor my management to their needs. Many conditions are successfully treated without surgery with the help of the right rehab regime. I see surgery as a last resort.
I studied medicine at St Bartholomew’s Hospital Medical School, London. I also undertook a BSc in Clinical Sciences at St Mary’s Hospital, London (1995). I was appointed to the Stanmore Orthopaedic Training Programme in 2002.
I undertook a fellowship at the internationally renowned Reading Shoulder Unit, where I developed my skills in arthroscopic shoulder and elbow surgery and also in shoulder arthroplasty.
I am a member of the British Orthopaedic Association and the British Elbow and Shoulder Society. I am also a member of the British Orthopaedic Sports Trauma Arthroscopy Association.
I have published several scientific papers and book chapters. I have also presented at many national and international meetings. I have been a faculty member on various orthopaedic and shoulder courses and continue to be involved in undergraduate and post graduate teaching.
When I am not looking after patients, I look forward to spending time with my wife and children. I enjoy playing squash and swimming as well as family days out.
