Clinical Career

My training started at the London Hospital but then I moved back to Cambridge University to do a year of anatomy demonstrating to enable me to get my early surgical exams. Other jobs then followed in the John Radcliffe Hospital and Nuffield Orthopaedic Centre in Headington, Oxford, The Gloucester Royal Infirmary, and my senior Registrar training finished in Bristol.


Before taking up the post at Warwick Hospital I had a year's Fellowship with the Arthritis Service in Rancho Los Amigos Hospital in Los Angeles working primarily with a hip surgeon called Larry Dorr and a knee surgeon called Kelly Vince.  Both these surgeons are extremely well known in their respective specialties and were a huge influence on my career.

Consultant Post

In December 1988 I was appointed as a consultant in Warwick Hospital.  When I started at that time I was one of three consultants providing an orthopaedic and trauma service to the local population.  With time the number of consultants has risen and my job has become more specialised.  I have now given up my on-call commitment.  My elective Orthopaedic work, which once covered all areas of the body, is now focused on hip and knee work.  My principle area of interest is now the hip although I regularly continue to do knee replacement surgery.
