I have been working as a consultant trauma and orthopaedic surgeon in Bury St Edmunds, Suffolk since September 2003. My main field of interest is knee surgery, in particular the treatment of knee cartilage disorders in patients of any age. My most commonly performed operations are keyhole surgery (arthroscopy), realignment operations (osteotomy) and knee replacement surgery (unicompartmental or partial, total and revision). I participate in a trauma rota dealing with emergency admissions (fractures, dislocations, infections).
I am a member of the Orthopaedic Data Evaluation Panel (ODEP) and Beyond Compliance committees, national committees responsible for implant ratings and safe introduction of modified or newly developed implants.
I have been invited to join a newly formed Primary Arthroplasty Working Group by the British Association for Surgery of the Knee (BASK), which is tasked to produce best practice guidelines on total and unicompartmental knee replacements.
The peer-reviewed journal The Knee regularly invites me to assess the suitability of scientific papers for publication.
I am a member of a European expert panel for the Physica ZUK partial knee replacement and have written chapters in consensus documents on the "Ideal patient for a partial knee replacement" and "How to deal with complications following partial knee replacement".
I founded local sports injury clinics for adults and children.
 
I regularly present research at national and international meetings. I am involved in teaching and training surgeons and orthopaedic trainees as well as other medical practitioners.
