About me

I am a Consultant Orthopaedic Surgeon who specialises in Hip and Knee surgery, Trauma and Limb Reconstruction. My NHS practice is based at Ninewells Hospital in Dundee, and Perth Royal Infirmary. I have been a Consultant in NHS Tayside since 2012. I qualified from the University of Dundee in 2002, and trained in Tayside and Glasgow, before undertaking specialist fellowships in Lower Limb Arthroplasty and Computer Assisted Orthopaedic Surgery at the Golden Jubilee National Hospital Clydebank, and in Limb Reconstruction at the Russian Ilizarov Scientific Centre for Restorative Traumatology and Orthopaedics, Kurgan, Siberia. I maintain a keen interest and have a diploma in Sport and Exercise Medicine.
I am happy to see patients of all ages with hip or knee pain. I can quickly arrange CT or MRI scans, if clinically required, and offer non-operative management such as joint injection in the clinic. Should we decide that surgery is required, I can offer knee (total and partial) and hip replacement surgery, as well as keyhole (arthroscopic) knee surgery at BMI Kings Park Hospital in Stirling, where I have practicing privileges. I work with an excellent team of anaesthetists, nurses and physiotherapists; our focus is on achieving the best possible outcome for each individual person. I use modern clinically proven implants and perform surgery on adults of all ages, using enhanced recovery techniques. I am one of a few surgeons in Scotland trained to perform Conformis custom Total Knee Replacement.
