Clinical interests

Having spent 20 years as a Hand and Wrist Orthopaedic Consultant Specialist and worked around the world, there are few conditions which I have not yet encountered.  In performing over 25,000 operations and many more directed injections, my surgical outcomes are exemplary.

What I have learned throughout my career is that every person is in some way unique and the real skill is having the ability to apply clinical excellence to your individual situation.
