Professional profile

I graduated from the University of Wales College of Medicine in 2000. I started my early surgical career in Cardiff and South Wales before moving to Wessex to pursue six years of orthopaedic training which included an AO sponsored trauma fellowship at the Rocky Mountain Trauma Centre Denver USA. During my training I developed a specialist interest in knee and hip problems. I  further complemented my training with a year of specialist knee surgery at the internationally respected Brisbane Orthopaedic & Sports Medicine Centre. During this year I also held an honorary position at the Mater Public Hospital in Brisbane. I returned to Bournemouth to undertake a further year of specialist training in hip and knee surgery in one of the busiest arthroplasty centres in the country. This was followed with a promotion to a temporary hip and knee consultant post at the Royal Bournemouth & Poole Hospitals. In 2012 I returned to South Wales to take up a permanent consultant post in hip and knee surgery with Aneurin Bevan University Health Board.
