I trained in Cape Town, South Africa, qualified as an Orthopaedic Surgeon there in 2011, and moved to Bristol in 2012 to undertake specialist fellowship training. I undertook three full years of fellowship training - in knee surgery, hip surgery and Major Trauma Centre trauma surgery at Southmead Hospital, with the guidance of several prestigious local surgeons.
I completed my FRCS (Eng) Trauma & Orthopaedic specialist examinations and was awarded my Certificate of Completion of Training (CCT) in 2015. I am on the GMC specialist register since 2015.
I work at Southmead Hospital, North Bristol NHS Trust, as an elective and trauma consultant surgeon.
I have a patient-centred approach and pride myself on personal, professional and surgical attention to detail.

Current NHS consultant posts held
I perform over 100 joint replacements a year in addition to a full trauma service at Southmead Hospital, North Bristol NHS Trust.
I use implants with excellent survivorship verified by the National Joint Registry (NJR) and Orthopaedic Data Panel Evaluation (ODEP) databases.
I am actively involved in appraisals and training of the next generation of orthopaedic surgeons in the region. At Southmead hospital I continue to support national and mutli-centre research trials in both trauma and elective surgery.
Having moved to Bristol in 2012 for a one-year fellowship, I found myself drawn to the beautiful city of Bristol and surrounding countryside, not to mention the lovely wife, family and two cats that followed. To balance a busy work schedule I enjoy several sports, barbeques, walks and good old-fashioned quality time with the family.
