Search for a Specialist
I see a huge variety of patients with many different rheumatological and musculoskeletal complaints, including inflammatory arthritis, such as rheumatoid arthritis, and axial spondyloarthritis, in which I have a particular interest, osteoarthritis, osteoporosis, connective tissue diseases, gout, fibromyalgia, and other more common musculoskeletal complaints such as painful shoulders and knees.
Primary Medical Qualification
MB ChB 1993 University of Birmingham
MSc 2005 Sports and Exercise Medicine
My specialist registrar training, largely in Bath and Bristol, allowed me to dual train in both Rheumatology and Rehabilitation Medicine, hence I have a great understanding of the rehabilitation considerations needed for many of the conditions that we treat, and I am on the Specialist register for both specialities.
I had an interest in Sports and Exercise Medicine even before starting Medical School, largely due to my involvement in high level sport as a competitive gymnast. As a student, I attended the World Student games as a medical volunteer, and subsequently volunteered at the Commonwealth Games in Manchester. I went on to become very involved with the British Paralympic Association, and acted as a medical officer at a number of Paralympic World Cups, and attended training camps in China with members of the Paralympic team during the build up to the Bejing Olympics.
I completed the University of Bath MSc in Sports and Exercise Medicine in 2005, and have been a member of the teaching faculty since then, offering tutoring on many of the exam courses offered, and examining other doctors for the diploma examination biannually.
In addition to being an elected member of the Faculty of Sports and Exercise Medicine, I am a Fellow of the Royal College of Physicians, and a member of the British Society for Rheumatology.
