Consultant orthopaedic surgeon (lower-limb arthroplasty)
I completed my undergraduate training at the University of Leicester Medical School in 2005. I stayed in the Midlands for my foundation years after which I moved to Leeds (Yorkshire School of Surgery) in 2007 for my core surgical training. In 2009 I began my trauma research fellowship at the University of Leeds, under the supervision of Prof. PV Giannoudis, achieving a postgraduate degree, Doctor of Medicine, in 2015.
My speciality training in Trauma & Orthopaedics took place in London/Essex, North-East Thames deanery with rotations based around the Royal London Hospital, Whitechapel.
I joined Prof Middleton's team at Royal Bournemouth & Poole Hospitals for my arthroplasty fellowship in 2019. In March 2020, during the first wave of the Covid-19 pandemic, I served as acting consultant and trauma surgeon at Poole Hospital for six months to help deal with the increased pressure on our trauma services.
I joined the team at St Richard's Hospital in December 2020 and hope to use my expertise to serve the local community.
