Having completed my specialist orthopaedic training on the highly regarded South Yorkshire rotation in Sheffield I developed a special interest in my chosen field of Upper Limb Surgery. I completed my fellowship at the nationally and internationally renowned Royal Derby Hospital and Pulvertaft Hand Unit. I have also undertaken training at the Balgrist Clinik in Switzerland to gain first hand experience and training from Professor Christian Gerber on the reverse shoulder prosthesis.
I have published on a number of topics in both national and international journals including the American Journal of Bone and Joint surgery and Injury. I continue to be actively involved in research to provide the highest quality evidence based treatment to my patients.
I am faculty on a number of national and international courses including the Sheffield/Chesterfield FRCS clinical examination course and The Royal College Of Surgeons Of England Amputations Course.
