Consultant Knee Surgeon
The young adult with an arthritic knee
After attending Dulwich College, I studied medicine at St Georges Hospital Medical School and undertook orthopaedic training on the North Thames Rotation with time spent at the Royal National Orthopaedic Hospital in Stanmore.
I undertook specialist fellowship training at New York University Medical Centre and was subsequently appointed as a Consultant Orthopaedic Surgeon at East & North Herts NHS Trust.
The majority of my practice involves treating patients of all age groups with knee problems ranging from sports injuries to arthritis. I can provide the appropriate treatment whether this is non operative or operative and have close links with local physiotherapists to ensure you obtain the optimal outcome.
I carry out the latest keyhole techniques for the management of ACL/cruciate ligament and meniscal/cartilage injuries. I perform the majority of primary and revision ACL/cruciate ligament reconstructions at the East & North Herts Trust.
I have considerable experience in managing the young patient with arthritis of the knee, performing knee sparing procedures such as high tibial and distal femoral osteotomies with the aid of Digital Templating allowing for greater accuracy. When osteotomies are not possible I carry out partial knee replacements. I also carry out primary and revision total knee replacements including MRI/CT planned custom knee replacement surgery.
I am also interested in patellofemoral problems such as dislocating kneecaps and can carry out minimally invasive patellar stabilisation surgery
