I am an experienced Consultant Orthopaedic Hand Surgeon specialising in hand, wrist and upper limb peripheral nerve surgery.
I studied medicine at the University of Dundee, graduating in 2004. I joined the Army and spent 10 years in the Royal Army Medical Corps, completing 2 operational tours of Afghanistan. I completed my higher Trauma and Orthopaedic training in the West Midlands, and in addition to my surgical training I attained a Masterâ€™s degree in Trauma and Orthopaedic Surgery.
I completed the prestigious Advanced Training Post fellowship in hand surgery at the Queen Elizabeth hospital in Birmingham, and in 2018 I passed the British Hand Surgery Diploma, winning the â€˜Vivien Leesâ€™ Gold Medal for the highest score in this competitive 3 day examination.
I am currently a Consultant Orthopaedic Hand Surgeon at the North West Anglia NHS Foundation Trust, based at both Peterborough City Hospital and at Hinchingbrooke Hospital.
I also see patients privately at the Avicenna clinic in the centre of Peterborough, and the Ramsay Fitzwilliam Hospital in Peterborough.
