About me

I'm a founding partner of Wimbledon Clinics (2001), a multidisciplinary orthopaedics and sports medicine clinic. The clinic is built on the premise that a well structured team delivers more than a sole practitioner. I'm a Specialist Knee Surgeon dealing with all aspects of knee surgery.

I enjoy managing sportsmen and women from the more sedate through to elite/professional athletes. I am expert in arthroscopic,ligament surgery and joint replacement techniques.

My clinical approach is focused on helping the active patient remain active.

I am a passionate skier and treat skiers of all levels – from beginner to Olympians. Skiers are referred to me from all over Europe. I started a unique recovery programme for skiers, The Return From Injury Ski Camp ™. I accompany my patients on their return to the slopes.

NHS consultant 1998 to 2010. I made a number of innovative changes to practice including introduction of a drug treatment that made blood transfusion after knee replacement a rare event. Now in standard use across the UK. I was the first to undertake a number of now well established operations: patella femoral (PF) replacement for isolated PF arthritis, trochlearplasty for dislocating PF joint. I setup a Musculoskeletal triage service with extended role physios that allowed an extra 1000 outpatient appointments in the first six months. The service won a National Award.
