Welcome to my knee and hip web-site which I hope you find informative and useful.

I am a Consultant Orthopaedic Surgeon specialising in knee and hip surgery.  My NHS practice is based at York Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust and Clifton Park NHS Treatment Centre. My private practice is at Nuffield Health York Hospital and Clifton Park Treatment Centre.

Having spent 15 years in Trauma and elective surgery and performed over 8,000 operations, I am versed in every conceivable condition and complication impacting the hip and knee. 

My aim is to improve the quality of life for all of my patients by eliminating or reducing their pain, returning them to normal activities as much as possible and where possible, delaying the need for knee or hip replacement.

When replacement is required, I believe in the use of well established techniques and implants, with a track record of excellent function and longevity, incorporating modern bearing surfaces to enhance likelihood of long-term success.  I hope this web-site goes some way to helping you navigate the complexities of condition diagnosis and possible treatments. However if you do have any pain, injury or concern, the only real way to learn about what it is and what can be done is to see a dedicated specialist.

If I can be of further assistance, please come and see me.
