"a surgeon is a physician who has the added ability operate"


Having qualified from Leicester Medical School in 1993, I spent a year as an Anatomy Demonstrator, passed the Primary FRCS, became a junior doctor in Norwich, then two years later joined the prestigious Percivall Pott Rotation. 


I was appointed a Consultant Trauma and Orthopaedic Surgeon at Barts and the Royal London in 2004. HEMS helicopter kept bringing major trauma, including those injured by the 2005 7/7 bombing. By 2011 I had become the Lead Clinician. Then I decided my future lay beyond the NHS.

Private Practice

I started private practise at the London Independent Hospital in 2004 and then at London Bridge Hospital in 2005. Leaving the Royal London meant the trip to Stepney was time-consuming, so I concentrated at London Bridge for a few years, punctuated with clinics at the Lister, Sevenoaks, City of London at Tower Hill, and 31 Old Broad St. I joined London Orthopaedic Clinic in 2015 and stayed there until One Welbeck opened this year.
