Research has always played an important, integral part of my working life; research is important in advancing knowledge, but also facilitates reading and understanding a topic thoroughly.

i have conducted research into a number of different areas of orthopaedic surgery including joint replacement, trauma, bone tumour surgery and training.

I have published and presented research in several different areas of children’s orthopaedics, including trauma, developmental dysplasia of the hip, clubfoot and limb reconstruction.

Below is a list of selected publications and presentations.
