About me

I took over as Lead of the Orthopaedic Research Unit in 2016 and was appointed as an Honorary Professor at University of East Anglia in the same year. All of my research is tailored to improving patient outcomes by laboratory-based investigations and trials involving surgical and rehabilitation techniques.

I undertook my undergraduate training at the University of Cambridge and qualified as a doctor from the University of Oxford in the year 2000. Then I undertook my higher surgical training on the East Anglian rotation. During this time I undertook a research degree (Doctorate of Medicine) at the University of Cambridge, with the research topic investigating the reconstruction of bone following failed joint replacement, for which I was awarded both luminosity and the top thesis prize in 2010.

I also undertook three fellowships over the course of two and a half years, training under international experts. Then I trained in sports surgery, including arthroscopic surgery and ligament reconstruction, and early arthritis intervention at the University of Western Ontario, Canada, a complex knee revision arthroplasty fellowship in Nottingham and a trauma fellowship at Addenbrooke’s Hospital, Cambridge.

I am married with two daughters. When not at work I try to stay fit by cycling and playing golf, increasingly badly. I also try to contribute to the music scene in Norwich.

Areas of interest

My elective work covers all aspects of knee surgery, especially management of early arthritis and cartilage tears, primary total and half knee joint replacement, redo (revision) and complex knee replacement, arthroscopic surgery and patella stabilisation surgery.
