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.
'Every aspect of my emergency care was dealt with quickly,
efficiently and professionally with full explanations and
compassion from all staff involved'.
