Personal profile

Research overview

After graduating from University of Manchester Medical School, I completed basic surgical training in the North-West Deanery before transferring to Edinburgh to commence Higher Surgical Training in Trauma and Orthopaedics. Fellowship training in knee surgery and revision lower limb arthroplasty took place in Edinburgh, Australia and New Zealand. My current post is as a consultant orthopaedic surgeon with an interest in complex knee surgery and medical education at the Victoria Hospital in Kirkcaldy, and work as an Associate Post-Graduate Dean(Quality) with NHS Education for Scotland(NES). In 2018 I was awarded an ABC (American-British-Canadian) Travelling Fellowship to North America.

I graduated from the University of St Andrews with an MD in Orthopaedic Surgery in 2016. My thesis investigatedthe factors influencing the outcome and survival of total knee replacement. My Research interests involve optimising the outcomes and performance of primary and revision knee arthroplasty, and improving both undergraduate and post-graduate education and training.
