Upper Limb Trauma & Orthopaedic Surgery
After qualifying from The Royal London Hospital in 1982, I trained in surgery in London and then in Cambridge. I completed my MD on the remodelling of bone in response to prosthetic implants and then spent a year on a sports medicine fellowship at a specialist orthopaedic sports clinic in Australia, learning advanced arthroscopic techniques. I was appointed Consultant Orthopaedic Surgeon at University College NHS Trust (UCLH) and Honorary Senior Lecturer at The University of London in 1996. In 1997 I was awarded the prestigious European Travelling Fellowship for the European Shoulder and Elbow Society. I was Clinical Director of Musculoskeletal Services at UCLH between 2000 and 2002. In 2004 I left the NHS and I now work solely in private practice.
