About me

I trained at St. Bartholomews Hospital Medical College, qualifying in 1992. After training in London and at the Royal National Orthopaedic Hospital I spent a year in Richmond Virginia training in sports arthroscopy.

My practice encompasses the full range of shoulder and elbow surgery.

I also see the full range of patients having treated Olympic medalists and Wimbledon Champions as well as people with more modest sporting and lifestyle ambitions.

As the senior shoulder surgeon at a London Teaching Hospital I am involved in training not only the shoulder surgeons of the future through our fellowship programme but the doctors of the future at the medical school.


I was appointed Professor of Orthopaedic Education at St. George’s University of London in 2018
