I was appointed as a full-time consultant trauma and orthopaedic surgeon at Derriford Hospital, Plymouth in 2008. My elective practice is devoted entirely to dealing with problems of the hand and wrist. I also work as a general trauma surgeon within the Major Trauma Centre at Derriford Hospital. I have developed a specialist interest in dealing with complex wrist trauma. My private practice is run through the Nueld Health Plymouth Hospital.
I qualfied from the Royal London Hospital in 1994 and was appointed a Fellow of the Royal College of Surgeons of England in 1998. I undertook specialist training in Trauma and Orthopaedics in Bristol and completed my training in 2007.
I have developed a sub-specialist interest in hand and wrist surgery. To further my interest and training I worked in an Advanced Training Post in Hand Surgery in Oxford in 2006. Awarded a travelling fellowship by the British Society for Surgery of the Hand, I undertook an international Hand Surgery Fellowship in Sydney, Australia in 2007. Away from the hospital I enjoy spending time with my wife and three children. I am an active sailor and enjoy participating in or following most sports, when the opportunity arises.
