I graduated from the University of Leeds in 2000, before entering into surgical training in the Yorkshire region.
After completing a postgraduate masters (MSc) by Research in Mechanical Engineering, I was appointed to the Yorkshire Orthopaedics and Trauma Higher Surgical Training Programme.
I quickly developed an interest in upper limb, sports and arthroscopic surgery and went on to achieve my Fellowship of the Royal College of Surgeons of England (Trauma and Orthopaedics) in 2010. I progressed to fellowship training in upper limb surgery at the internationally renowned Wrightington Upper Limb Unit and then at the Sheffield Shoulder and Elbow Unit.
With an evidence-based practice, I believe in research that involves populations of patients being treated by populations of surgeons. I have published many articles in peer reviewed orthopaedic journals and contributed to textbooks.
I predominantly manage patients with shoulder and elbow conditions (including trauma and sports injuries). I work closely with a specialist shoulder physiotherapist to ensure appropriate non-surgical treatments are offered and perform both arthroscopic (keyhole) and open surgery.
