patients requiring orthopaedic treatment, particularly joint
Having gained my medical qualifications from Cambridge and
Oxford Universities I specialized in Orthopaedics in Oxford,
Bath and Oswestry. I was appointed as a Consultant in
Basingstoke in 1990.
I have a general orthopaedic practice and treat the
majority of orthopaedic complaints including trauma. My sub
speciality interests are:
- Joint replacement
Hip replacement, knee replacement and shoulder replacement
Joint revision surgery
- Shoulder surgery
- Rheumatoid arthritis
Management of complex multi-joint
This site is not comprehensive but endeavours to cover
the more common orthopaedic problems in which I specialize. The section on
contains essential information for anyone considering
surgery. The operative advice sheets are designed to be
helpful to patients and GPs alike.
I welcome both NHS and private referrals; professional
etiquette is for UK patients to be referred by their General
Practitioner. You may
email general enquiries, but it is inappropriate to
provide personal medical advice over the internet.
