    Frequently asked questions

  • Why do you do what you do?

    I am in a fortunate position where I have a job that I love. I am able to improve people’s quality of life by improving their pain, movement and function. This is not just through surgery: I work with a team of highly talented physiotherapists and clinicians to provide world-class care. Having trained at some of the world’s best hospitals, and through my academic and managerial roles, I am able to offer patients the best and newest methods of treatments and technologies.

  • What are the common symptoms that your patients tend to present with?

    I treat two main groups of patients: the young sportsmen and sportswomen who present with acute injuries, or those who have undergone wear and tear. Joint pain and loss of function are the most common presenting complaints, followed by weakness, numbness and loss of function.

    I also treat broken bones and tendon injuries, most commonly the result of falls or accidents.

  • What are the treatments that you're able to offer your patients?

    I offer evidence-based, team led and proven treatments: both operative and non-operative. I am an experienced surgeon who will use keyhole (arthroscopic) methods where possible. I can treat most traumatic limb injuries and receive regional referrals for complex injuries to the upper limb.
