Professional profile

I qualified in Medicine & Surgery at the University of Birmingham in 2000.  I completed my house officer training at University Hospital Birmingham before returning to South Wales for my basic surgical training.  During this time, I trained in Wales and the South West region before undertaking my higher surgical training on the ‘All Wales’ Trauma & Orthopaedic programme.  Whilst a specialist registrar I completed a Master’s degree in Trauma Surgery at Swansea University.

After completing my higher surgical training, I gained a further year of specialised experience in lower limb arthroplasty (joint replacement) as a fellow at North Shore Hospital in Auckland, New Zealand.

I was appointed as a Consultant at Aneurin Bevan University Health Board in 2013, based at Nevill Hall Hospital.

I am originally from the Newport area and enjoy being outdoors, especially gardening and spending time with my family.

Consultant Orthopaedic Surgeon, Aneurin Bevan University Health Board

My clinical interest is lower limb surgery, primarily hip and knee replacement.  I also perform arthroscopic or ‘key hole’ surgery of the knee, but not ligament reconstruction surgery.  I am an advocate of patient related outcome data and how this can improve our techniques to ensure the best function, longevity and rapid recovery from surgery as possible.
