I completed a degree in basic sciences followed by medicine at
Sheffield University. I returned to the north east to finish my
orthopaedic training before taking up my post at Durham in
My area of special interest is lower limb arthroplasty surgery,
both primary and revision surgery. My area of interest within this
field is surgery for rheumatoid disease, particularly total knee
arthroplasty. I do however maintain my general interest in elective
orthopaedics and traumatology within the department.

ever and they were brilliant with me and I can't thank them enough
- could you please pass on my sincere thanks.'
