Chris graduated from the University of Aberdeen in 2007 before completing the North of Scotland specialist training programme in Trauma and Orthopaedics. A locally and internationally trained surgeon, he completed his subspecialist fellowship training in Trauma and Lower Limb Arthroplasty in Adelaide, South Australia in 2017.

Since returning to Aberdeen as a Consultant in 2018, he has worked in both Aberdeen Royal Infirmary and Woodend General Hospital as well as providing a visiting service to the Orkney Isles. Chris is a trainer to the registrars on the local rotation, and keeps a keen research interest. He is actively involved in service improvement in the NHS and is an advocate of appropriate use of modern techniques and technology to improve both quality and efficiency of care in both the NHS and private sector.


Chris offers a wide range of Orthopaedic services with an emphasis on timely, high quality care. His practice has a clear focus on lower limb surgery, offering expertise in both primary and revision hip and knee replacements. Chris offers MAKO robotic surgery for total hip replacement as well as total and partial knee replacement. The muscle sparing direct anterior approach for total hip replacement is also an option for appropriate patients both robotically and manually. Other wide ranging conditions causing hip or knee pain are also managed by Chris using both operative and non-operative treatments.

As well as this, he has experience in hand and foot surgery and will happily assess these conditions and offer treatments for base of thumb arthritis, overuse syndromes or tendinopathies as well as routinely managing bunions and forefoot arthritis.

Chris has an active involvement in both Grampian’s orthopaedic trauma service and the North of Scotland Major Trauma Centre. He regularly manages the full range of general orthopaedic trauma as well as more complex lower limb trauma. He has experience in dealing with non-union of fractures, post –traumatic arthritis and fractures around both hip and knee replacements.
