Area of expertise
I graduated from Univeristy College London in 1998. Having developed an interest in foot and ankle surgery early on as a junior doctor, I went on to obtain my higher surgical training in London, which I was able to tailor to my interests. My specialist foot and ankle training was completed with multiple fellowships. I spent a year on two fellowships at the Royal National Orthopaedic Hospital in Stanmore, eight months at The Royal Infirmary of Edinburgh and a month at the Russian Ilizarov Scientific Centre for Restorative Traumatology and Orthopaedics.
In early 2010, I was appointed as a Consultant trauma and orthopaedic surgeon in Cheltenham General Hospital and helped develop the Foot and Ankle service there. I now teach nationally and internationally on foot and ankle surgery.
Since moving to Gloucestershire I have developed an ever growing interest in sports medicine. In my spare time I am one of the doctors for Gloucester Rugby, Cheltenham Race Course and several major Eventing competitions including Badminton and Gatcombe. I have acted as an advisor to Gloucester Rugby and Cheltenham Town Football Club for many years and recently been approached to get involved on a national level. One of the highlights was being an orthopaedic matchday doctor for several Rugby World Cup matches in 2015.
My elective practice is exclusively in the foot and ankle, with interests in all areas. I also have a strong interest in trauma of the foot and ankle. A significant proportion of my NHS operating is spent fixing acute injuries around the foot and ankle.
