My special interest within orthopaedics is shoulder and elbow problems in which I have a long experience having been an NHS Consultant since 1997.

My NHS appointment is at West Herts NHS Trust (Watford, St Albans and Hemel Hempstead Hospitals) and I see private patients at Spire Hospital, Harpenden and at the Elms Consulting Rooms in Hall Place Gardens in central St Albans.  Spire Hospital and the Elms both have free on-site parking.

What I offer

I am consulted for and treat all types of orthopaedic problem (joint pain) of the shoulder and elbow.  I am also consulted for soft tissue problems such as ganglions and lumps and bumps on hands, wrists and other joints.

I really enjoy being consulted by elderly patients.  The amazing experiences of the older patients and their challenging orthopaedic problems make them interesting and rewarding.

I treat sports injuries in patients of all ages and I am passionate about sport myself.  I see patients who I call my “weekend warriors” – those who work hard during the week and then love to get out and have a sport filled weekend.

I see patients at Spire Hospital, Harpenden and The Elms Consulting Rooms in St Albans.
