After graduating from the University of London in 1992, I trained at Guy's Hospital Medical School before carrying out my surgical and orthopaedic training in London and the South East of England.
In my final year of training I undertook a neuro-orthopaedic fellowship in the renowned spinal unit in Adelaide Hospital, South Australia, working closely with Professor R D Fraser.
My elective orthopaedic practice is entirely spine based.
I am a GMC recognised trainer and an examiner for the FRCS (Orth) examination, teaching and training medical students, junior doctors and specialist registrars.
I have been involved in peer reviewed publications.
In addition to the services I provide at Benenden Hospital, I also work with the NHS as a Consultant Orthopaedic Surgeon at the East Sussex Healthcare Trust and am the Regional Coordinator for the National Joint Registry.
Married with two children, I enjoy watching and playing cricket and golf.
My clinical interests include degenerative spinal conditions, the surgical and non-surgical management of those conditions and the management of sciatica.
