I was born and bred in South Africa where I completed my
undergraduate medical training at the University of Cape Town. I
have resided in the UK since 1997.
I undertook my basic surgical training in Yorkshire graduated
from the University of Teesside with an MSc and was appointed a
registrar in orthopaedics in the Northern deanery.
After completion of my higher surgical training I spent a
fellowship year at the prestigious Wrightington Upper Limb Unit
including 6 months as a Royal College of Surgeons' fellow. This has
stood me in good stead to pursue my specialist interest as a
I form part of the team that looks to provide an efficient and
comprehensive trust wide service covering all aspects of elective
and trauma upper limb pathology.
'The treatment I have received from all the staff has been
excellent and could you extend my thanks to them all. A very
thankful and relieved patient'.
