I am a Consultant Orthopaedic and Trauma Surgeon specialising primarily in the care of patients with disorders of the shoulder.
My special interests include arthroscopic (keyhole) surgery for soft tissue injuries of the shoulder, including sports injuries and degenerative conditions. I also have a specialist interest in joint replacement surgery for shoulder arthritis. I provide surgical treatments for tennis and golfer’s elbow (including PRP injections) and have expertise in the treatment of fractures and traumatic injuries to the shoulder.
I lecture nationally and internationally on shoulder surgery and am involved in running a national arthroscopic shoulder surgery course. I have an active interest in research and regularly publish in medical journals. I have presented research at national and international scientific meetings and was part of the team who were awarded the Ian Kelly Prize for research at BESS Dublin 2016.
In 2018, with my colleague Mr Chris Peach, I was awarded a GHP Private Healthcare Award for Best Sports Injury Therapy Specialists for North West England and in 2019 was awarded ‘Leaders in Sports Injury Treatment 2019 - North West England.’
My innovative, outcome-led practice is represented by my regular publications in international peer-reviewed journals and presentations at international meetings.
I developed my expertise from holding UK shoulder fellowship posts at Stepping Hill Hospital under the supervision of Mr Matt Ravenscroft and Mr Clive Warren-Smith, followed by an upper limb fellowship at the internationally renowned Wrightington Upper Limb Unit.
