- Orthopaedic and Trauma Surgery
I was appointed as a Consultant Trauma and Orthopaedic Surgeon in Northampton in 2005. I completed my medical training in London in 1992, and went on to gain specialist Trauma and Orthopaedic accreditation in 2003 after completing my Higher Surgical Training at the Nuffield Orthopaedic Centre in Oxford. Further subspecialist Fellowship experience in hip and knee surgery was undertaken in Sydney, Australia in 2004. I am a specialist in hip and knee replacement surgery and have a special interest in arthroscopic surgery of the knee in sports injury, including ACL reconstruction and cartilage repair techniques. In addition, I also manage all general orthopaedic trauma, including the acute treatment of upper and lower limb fractures and soft tissue injuries. I am committed to ensuring the highest quality of care for all of my patients, both in the NHS and private sectors. I deal with every case on an individual and personal basis, allowing time to fully discuss conditions and their treatments before recommending any course of action. All patients undergoing surgery are assured of at least two outpatient appointments prior to their surgery, to ensure all their needs are met and questions are answered. All patients are enrolled in an internet-based outcome scoring system to allow long term follow up after their surgery and ensure that any concerns can be addressed. I love to hear how my patients are doing after their surgery – often a postcard from far-flung places which they never thought they would be able to visit, or that they have managed to return to their favourite sport following injury. Having an operation can be a daunting prospect. I assure all of my patients that they will be receiving the very highest standard of care. This includes the application of the most modern anaesthetic and surgical techniques, which deliver the most rapid return to fitness and improved health by a combination of proven interventions including optimal pain medication and rehabilitation protocols. I will only use surgical implants with proven excellent long-term results. In knee ligament surgery, I have adopted a low-morbidity technique for reconstruction using a single hamstring tendon graft, allowing a more rapid post-operative recovery and better knee function than conventional techniques. Most importantly, I am honest in my approach. If the current scientific evidence is that a patient’s particular condition cannot be helped by surgery, I will advise accordingly.
