Bobby graduated from UCL medical school in London. He also completed a degree in Orthopaedic Science during medical training. His specialist orthopaedic training took place in Cambridge and London through the North West Thames training program run through Imperial College London. His love of sport led him to develop his interest in knee surgery and sports injuries very early on in his career. He enhanced his training by completing four top fellowships in knee surgery. He spent time both overseas and, in the UK, to learn from the best. His time in Italy and Melbourne, Australia was very valuable. He was honoured to be awarded the European arthroscopy travelling fellowship in 2013. This gave him the opportunity to travel to meet the top surgeons in Europe to share ideas, techniques, and research.
He has mastered numerous procedures, such as knee arthroscopy, for managing a wide variety of knee-related ailments. This includes issues affecting the meniscus and the anterior cruciate ligament (ACL). He is also an expert in the management of knee arthritis, as well as sports traumatology. Other areas where he has expertise includes: robotic partial and total knee replacements, MCL injuries, young adult joint preserving surgery and PCL injuries. He also offers orthobiological “stem cell” solutions and robotic surgery if indicated.
