Thank you for visiting my website. This resource is intended to provide you with information on my practice, the team who work with me, the work that we undertake, the conditions that we treat, the outcome of my work and my research interests.

My private practice is based at St Anthony's Hospital in Cheam and the Lister Hospital in London. I also undertake surgery at the Wellington Hospital in London.

My practice is almost exclusively focused on the investigation and treatment of hip and knee problems.

I am one of the world's most experienced surgeons in hip arthroscopy, and bone conserving hip replacement.

My work is divided between:
1) National Health Service (NHS) practice at the South West London Elective Orthopaedic Centre (SWLEOC) and St Helier Hospital, Carshalton.
2) Private Practice at St Anthony's Hospital, Cheam.
3) My role as Director of Research at SWLEOC.
4) Prosthesis design and development.

I perform approximately 600 operations each year. These include:
Hip Replacement - Hip Resurfacing, Bone Conserving Mini-Hip, Primary and Revision Hip Replacement
Hip Arthroscopy
Joint Preserving Early Intervention Hip Surgery
Knee Replacement - Primary and Revision Knee Replacement
Knee Arthroscopy
Cruciate Ligament Reconstruction

Following an Orthopaedic training in London, Cambridge and Melbourne, I was appointed to the staff of St Helier Hospital, Carshalton, Surrey, in 1994. My NHS practice was based at St Helier Hospital until 2004 when the new South West London Elective Orthopaedic Centre (SWLEOC) opened, on the Epsom Hospital campus.

I undertake NHS operations at SWLEOC and private operations at SWLEOC and at St Anthony’s Hospital, Cheam. NHS out-patients clinics are held at St Helier Hospital and SWLEOC. Private out-patient clinics are held at St Anthony's.
