Qualified from King’s College London in 1997, and returned to Sheffield to complete specialised orthopaedic training. Appointed at Rotherham Hospital in 2009 as a consultant with a special interest in shoulder and elbow surgery.

Originally from Sheffield I went to study medicine at King’s College London. After completing a degree (BSc) in biomedical science qualified in medicine in 1997. Working initially in the South East, I returned to the Sheffield region to commence and complete my orthopaedic training.

After passing the FRCS trauma and orthopaedics exam I undertook and upper limb fellowship in Coventry. I was then appointed as a consultant in 2009 in Rotherham.

My specialist interest is shoulder and elbow surgery, providing a comprehensive range of open and arthroscopic treatments for a wide variety of conditions. I am also clinical effectiveness, audit and governance lead at Rotherham Hospital.

I enjoy teaching to all levels of medical staff and am faculty on regional and national courses, including shoulder arthroscopy workshops at the Royal College of Surgeons in London.

"For the first time in 2 years, I managed to go for a drive and reached back for the seat belt with my right arm - a manoeuvre which just came automatically…it is such a relief to finally be virtually pain free and have almost 100% mobility back"   - Seven months after rotator cuff repair surgery ( Shoulder and Elbow )

"I noticed progressive improvement in flexibility and strength of my shoulder and I’m able to enjoy my work as a professional circus artist and performer"   - One year after biceps tenodesis surgery ( Shoulder and Elbow )
