This part of the site details the orthopaedic procedures that I have expertise in.
My main surgical interest is joint replacements such as hip and knee replacement. I have experience in revision joint replacement and the treatment of infected joint replacements. I have 21 years experience of Hip Resurfacing.
I have a particular interest in the orthopaedic problems of patients with rheumatoid arthritis and I have also regularly undertaken operations such as elbow and shoulder replacement and rheumatoid foot surgery.
These pages give details of some of the more frequent operations I have expertise in:
Things I do not do:
I do not do any arthroscopic surgery (keyhole surgery for sports injuries and similar problems).
There isn't much point in seeing me for torn knee cartilages, arthroscopic decompressions in the shoulder and most sports injuries.
I don't do routine foot surgery for bunions and similar problems, only for patients with rheumatoid arthritis and similar diseases.
I do not do much hand surgery apart from minor procedures connected with elbow replacement.
I do not do any acute trauma surgery but I do deal with late effects of trauma such as secondary arthritis.
I do not see any patients with back pain or sciatica privately, only at the Royal Orthopaedic Hospital.
I also have a long standing interest in lumbar spine disorders and sciatica I have experiance of microsurgical lumbar disc excisions and other spinal operations but I no longer undertake these operations.
