I am a Consultant Orthopaedic Surgeon specialising exclusively in knee surgery and sports injuries of the lower limb.
My private practice is based in Warwickshire at the Nuffield and BMI Hospitals and my NHS practice is at University Hospitals Coventry and Warwickshire. I consult at the Warwickshire Nuffield Hospital and the BMI Meriden Hospital in Coventry and also have private operating lists at both of these hospitals.
I graduated from Birmingham Medical School in 1992 and after completing medical and surgical house jobs in Birmingham and Worcester I spent 15 months working as a junior doctor in Australia before returning to London to concentrate on surgical training.
I completed my specialist registrar orthopaedic and trauma training in London and spent time at St Mary’s Hospital in Paddington and the Chelsea & Westminster Hospital. It was during this time that I became particularly interested in knee surgery and I therefore spent a six month fellowship in Australia in 1994 concentrating on knee and sports surgery.
I took up my consultant post at University Hospitals Coventry and Warwickshire in April 2005. I have been Clinical Director of the orthopaedic department since April 2011 and responsible for leading the large team of orthopaedic surgeons who work there.
My interests cover all areas of knee surgery from sports injuries to revision knee replacement. For further information follow the link to procedures profile.
I have links with a number of professional sports teams within the UK and I have been involved in the treatment of knee injuries for British gymnastics.
In addition, I am dedicated to the surgical training of undergraduate medical students at Warwick University, junior doctors and specialist orthopaedic registrars. I teach regularly on national and international courses and lecture at Warwick University where I have an honorary associate professorship.
I am married to Sally who is a local GP and also helps organise my private practice. We have two young children. My interests outside of work include competing in triathlon events, cycling and running.
