Personal Profile

I am a Consultant Orthopaedic and Trauma Surgeon at The Calderdale and Huddersfield NHS Foundation Trust. I have an established private practice at The Huddersfield Hospital in Birkby, Huddersfield.

I offer a comprehensive elective (planned care) and trauma, shoulder and elbow service. I adopt a sensible and practical approach to solving my patients’ problems. I tailor solutions to the individual and ensure that my patients understand and can influence their treatment journey.

I graduated with honours from Sheffield University Medical School in 2001. After a period of surgical training in Sheffield, I was appointed to the Yorkshire Orthopaedic Higher Surgical Training Programme based out of Leeds. During my training, I undertook a Diploma in Sports and Exercise Medicine, gaining an in-depth knowledge about the benefits of exercise and the best treatments for injuries in all levels of athlete.

At the end of my general orthopaedic training, I undertook a 12 month period (2013) of specialist training (fellowship) with world-renowned upper-limb surgeon, Dr Laurent Lafosse MD in Annecy in the French Alps. There I learnt first-hand the best and most modern approaches to treat shoulder and elbow problems. Whilst in France I also spent time with Dr Gilles Walch in Lyon, who is widely regarded as the modern-day master of the open Latarjet procedure. Further upper limb experience was gained when I spent a month in Boston (USA) with Dr JP Warner at Massachusetts General Hospital. Dr JP Warner is a shoulder specialist focusing particularly on revision (second time) joint replacement and tendon/muscle transfers for rotator cuff deficiencies.

In the shoulder, I am a specialist in arthroscopic rotator cuff surgery and instability treatments, including the Latarjet procedure (coracoid transfer). I also offer open surgery for conditions around the elbow such as tennis elbow (lateral epicondylitis) and ulnar nerve entrapment.

I am invited as an expert on many regional and national courses and am involved in the training of trainee surgeons in the Yorkshire region. I am actively involved in audit and research as part of clinical governance within the NHS Trust and have several publications in surgical literature.

I grew up in the North-West of England and my passion for the outdoors drew me to Yorkshire. I now live locally and have a busy home life with my wife and three children. I enjoy spending time with my family and doing outdoor sports, preferably combining the two. I enjoy mountain and road biking as well as running, kayaking, windsurfing, water-skiing and snow skiing. In the last decade I have focused on endurance sports and competitions including the OMM (Original Mountain Marathon) and Adventure Racing. My love for sport and the outdoors means that I have the upmost sympathy for injured sportsmen and women and I aim to treat all patients with the goal of reinstating their pre-injury activity level.
