I am one of only a handful of truly specialist hip surgeons in the UK. My NHS and private practices are solely devoted to treating hip conditions.
Because I just specialise in hips - each year I do hundreds of hip replacement operations. This has allowed me to become highly experienced in the hip replacement field leading to very low complication rates. At The BMI Priory - I offer hip pain relieving injections, Total Hip Replacements and Revision surgery (helping patients where previous hip surgery has failed).
In my private practice I treat people from around the world, with all kinds of hip injuries caused by playing sport or trauma or arthritis.
I graduated from the Charing Cross Medical School in London in 1995 with distinction.
I also won the surgery prize.
My higher surgical training in Orthopaedics brought me to the West Midlands.
I also undertook advanced training in complex and revision hip surgery in Oxford before taking up my consultant post at the one of the leading specialist Orthopaedic hospitals in the country - the Royal Orthopaedic in Birmingham in 2004.
My NHS practice is at the Royal Orthopaedic hospital, a centre of excellence for hip surgery.
