About Me


I am a specialist in Trauma and Orthopaedic surgery with an interest in conditions affecting the hand and wrist.

I hold a substantive NHS consultant post at Harrogate District Hospital, and NHS appointments can be made through choose and book. I also consult at the BMI Harrogate Hospital (known locally as the ‘Duchy Hospital’).

I consult and treat conditions in the generality of orthopaedics, and where appropriate will refer patients to colleagues whose areas of expertise are greater than mine, in a manner similar to my being referred patients with hand and wrist conditions by my colleagues.

I hope that the information on this web-site will be of use to those who visit it.
