Consultant Shoulder Surgeon, Addenbrookes Hospital, Cambridge
I undertook my medical training at St Bartholomew’s Hospital in London and qualified as a doctor in 1990. Following this I did my initial general surgical training in London and Cambridge, where I worked for a year at Cambridge University, teaching Anatomy and undertaking research. My specialist training in Orthopaedics and Trauma was in Edinburgh.
At the end of my training I spent 3 months in Turin and 18 months in Toronto on a specialized Fellowship in Shoulder & Elbow surgery and Sports Surgery. This gave me particular exposure and experience to minimal access and keyhole surgical techniques and to the exacting demands and expectations of treating elite level athletes.
In 2002 I was appointed as a Consultant Orthopaedic Surgeon,specializing in shoulder and elbow surgery, at Addenbooke’s Hospital which is part of the Cambridge University Hospitals Trust. This is a large tertiary referral teaching hospital and a regional major trauma centre. In 2004 I became an Honorary Clinical Fellow of Cambridge University which is a world renowned academic institution.
Prior to going to University I undertook a Short Service Limited Commission in the British Army with the Blues & Royals. I served in the UK, Germany & Canada.
