I completed basic and higher surgical training in the North East of England. I pursued advanced training by completing the Cavendish Hip and Knee arthroplasty fellowship at Sheffield, UK followed by an AO Trauma Fellowship at Massachusetts General Hospital, Boston, USA.
I have been awarded the British Orthopaedic Association (BOA) travelling fellowship (Mount Sinai Hospital, Toronto), British Association of Surgeons of Knee (BASK) fellowship (New Delhi) and the Charnley Latta Travelling Scholarship (ENDO-Klinik, Hamburg).
My clinical practice involves primary and revision hip and knee replacement surgery. I also deal with soft tissue knee problems including meniscal and ACL injuries. I have a keen interest in trauma management and perform various trauma related procedures including complex periarticular and periprosthetic fracture fixation of lower limb.
I have interest in teaching for medical students and surgical trainees. I teach on several regional, national and international courses for trainees. I am a faculty at courses organised by Royal College of Surgeons and an ATLS instructor. I also teach at FRCS (Orth) exam preparation courses.
I have presented at international meetings such as American Academy, British Orthopaedic Association and various other subspecialty conferences. I have several publications, book chapters and co-edited a book.
