I have particular interest in hip and knee joint replacement and revision (re-do joint replacement) surgery, knee and hip arthroscopy and arthroscopic hip impingement surgery.

I perform approximately 200 primary hip and knee replacements, 50 revision joint replacements and 60 hip arthroscopies each year.

I organise Royal College of Surgeons Hip and Knee Replacement courses, and have taught recently in the UK, Germany, Ireland and Italy on the subject of joint replacement. I am currently an examiner for the FRCS (Trauma and Orthopaedics) examination.

Current member of the British Hip Society.

Recent research interests include hip replacement surgery, techniques in revision hip surgery and results of hip arthroscopy.
