I am passionate about hip and knee replacement surgery, two of the most life-changing operations available, and have focused my orthopaedic career on these operations. Every patient is an individual. I will listen carefully to your problem, identify the cause of your pain and tailor your personal treatment. My team and I strive to ensure each and every one of my patients receives the very best care to achieve the very best result.
