My Training

Trauma & Orthopaedic Training

I received my basic surgical training in a number of different centres, including the Orthopaedic and Trauma units in Oxford and the Royal National Orthopaedic Hospital, Stanmore. Prior to higher specialist training, I undertook a Research Fellowship based at the Royal National Orthopaedic Hospital and the Centre for Biomedical Engineering, University College London.

I then became a Specialist Registrar on The Royal London Hospital Trauma & Orthopaedic Training Program in London.

I placed an emphasis on Children’s Orthopaedics throughout my specialist training, but have been trained in all aspects of adult orthopaedics, including joint replacement, upper limb surgery, spinal surgery and trauma surgery. This knowledge and training in adult surgery is very useful in dealing with many problems in children.

Super-specialist Training in Children’s (Paediatric) Orthopaedics
Having decided to specialise in Children’s Orthopaedic Surgery quite early on in my career, my training was focussed accordingly with over a third of my training time in specialist Children’s Orthopaedic Units. This included Specialist Registrar posts at Barts & The Royal London Hospitals and The Great Ormond Street Hospital for Children.

During the last two years of my training, I completed specialist Paediatric Orthopaedic Fellowships (including Paediatric Limb Reconstruction) in the following internationally renowned centres of excellence:

The Children’s Hospital at Westmead, Sydney, Australia
The Great Ormond Street Hospital for Children, London, UK
Sheffield Children’s Hospital, Sheffield, UK
