I was appointed a consultant at the Norfolk & Norwich University Hospital in 2003. My primary interest is in hip & knee replacement surgery and knee arthroscopy. I qualified from Cambridge in 1991 an my training was predominantly in the Eastern Deanery, with a specialist hip surgery fellowship in Australia.
I was awarded the British & American Hip Societies Travelling Fellowship in 2007 and have a Master of Surgery degree for a thesis on the basic science of loosening of joint replacements.
In 2010 I introduced the concept of enhanced recovery in hip & knee replacement to Norwich. By a multi-disciplinary approach, modified surgical and anaesthetic techniques, together with a new post-operative analgesic regime & more physiotherapy, we have improved pain relief & rehabilitation, resulting in a reduced the length of stay after hip & knee replacements.

I am Service Director for Trauma & Orthopaedics at the Norfolk & Norwich University Hospital.
