I’m a fellowship trained Paediatric Orthopaedic Surgeon.
I undertake all categories of paediatric orthopaedic work except for spinal deformities. My sub specialist interest is related
to limb deformity and skeletal dysplasias.
My Medical school training was in the West Indies. I subsequently migrated to the UK to undertake specialist training
in 1997. I was elected a Fellow of the Royal College of Surgeons of Edinburgh in 1999. I undertook my Orthopaedic specialist
training in Merseyside. My Paediatric Orthopaedic specialisation came from spending 14 months at Alder Hey Children Hospital
working with world renowned surgeons.
this time, I successfully completed the subspecialty examination in Trauma and Orthopaedic. This was followed with a further
6 month National Paediatric Orthopaedic fellowship at the Robert Jones Agnes Hunt Orthopaedic Hospital. I then undertook
a 1 year international fellowship at the Royal Children’s Hospital Melbourne, Australia.
I was appointed as a Consultant Paediatric Orthopaedic Surgeon in
January 2008 and took up the post in July 2008.
My NHS practise consists of 50% General Paediatric Orthopaedics and
50% Special interest (Limb Reconstruction Surgery).
My main research interests relate to the prognostic indicators for poor outcome following joint infections and the
role of gait lab analysis in limb reconstruction surgery.
have had formal training in the preparations of medicolegal reports. I currently undertake medicolegal work for both complainants
and defendants. I am instructed directly by solicitors and by intermediary agencies. My turnover time for the preparation
of reports is typically 2 weeks.
I am a member of both the British Limb Reconstruction
Society (BLRS) and the British Society of Children Orthopaedic Surgeons (BSCOS)
