Consultant Orthopaedic Surgeon

Hon. Professor - Edge Hill University

 Hip & Knee Surgeon


I have been working as a Consultant Orthopaedic Surgeon at the Internationally renowned "Centre for Hip Surgery" at Wrightington Hospital    and at the Lancashire Teaching Hospitals NHS Trust since 1996.  I deal with General Orthopaedics and have a special interest in Sports Injuries, Arthroscopic Knee Surgery, Hip & Knee Replacement & Forefoot Surgery.  I perform Computer Aided Surgery for complex Knees and use Ceramics in Young patients. 

I use the latest Patient Specific Knee Replacements (made and created specifically for that individual patient) for Complex Difficult Knees.

I am one of very few Orthopaedic Surgeons in the U.K. who has published his Personal Outcomes of Surgery in International peer-reviewed journals.

In my Personal series of Hip and Knee Replacements since 1996 to-date as Consultant, only 3 patients have developed early deep infection as a complication in 11.5 years and NO patient has developed any early post-op MRSA infection of the artificial joint . 

I have published my personal results of Total Hip Replacement surgery  in the British Journal of Bone & Jt. Surgery in 2005 which showed a 100% survivorship of the artificial joint at 9 years for aseptic loosening. 

My personal results of Total Knee Replacement surgery  have been recently published in Acta Orthopaedica Belgica in 2007 which showed  a 99.4% survivorship  of the artificial joint at 9 years

I have recently published the results of my own Personal technique of Bunion Surgery in the American Journal of Foot & Ankle Surgery showing 96% good results


Prof. Sir John Charnley introduced the present day successful Hip Replacement operation to the world in the early 1960's at Wrightington Hospital.


I did my basic Orthopaedic Training in Bombay, India at the King Edward Memorial Hospital (University of Bombay) and was a Lecturer in Orthopaedic Surgery at the University Hospital before coming to U.K. 

I trained in U.K. as a Registrar in Orthopaedics at Oswestry on a 3 year rotation.  My Senior Registrar Rotation was at Birmingham working at the Royal Orthopaedic Hospital in Birmingham and the Coventry DGH.

I gained further training in my fields of special interest  during the Surgical Fellowships:


During my training period I acquired a Masters Degree in Orthopaedic Surgery (M.Ch.Orth.) from the University of Liverpool and from the University of Bombay (M.S.Orth.).  I secured the Speciality Fellowship in Orthopaedics (F.R.C.S.Ed. Orth.) from the Royal College of Surgeons of Edinburgh. 

I was given the Honour of being invited to become a Fellow of the Royal  College of Surgeons of Edinburgh in appreciation of my Clinical Research work and my Publications in the field of Hip and Knee Arthroplasty.  I have more than 30 International publications to my credit and have been invited to lecture on Joint Replacement Surgery at various international and national conferences.  I have made more than 115 presentations.

Nominated by the British Hip Society to act as a Specialist Advisor to NICE’s (National Institute of Clinical Excellence)  Interventional Procedures Programme.
