Professional Profile: I graduated from the University of Newcastle in 2002. I completed my basic surgical training in the North East of England and moved to Edinburgh for my higher specialist training. At the end of my training I spent a year-long specialist training fellowship in Vancouver, Canada, before returning to Edinburgh in July 2013 to take up a consultant post in Trauma and Orthopaedics at the Royal Infirmary of Edinburgh.

My private practice reflects my NHS work. I have a specialist interest in hand, wrist and upper limb surgery, and run a weekly hand and wrist clinic at the Royal Infirmary of Edinburgh. I also have a special interest in sports upper limb injuries, trauma and exercise induced pain. I am the Training Programme Director for Orthopaedics in South East Scotland, co-director of the world-renowned Edinburgh International Trauma Symposium, and Treasurer for ARTOF, the Association for the Rational Treatment of Fractures.

Personal Profile: I live in Edinburgh with my wife Heather, who is a GP in Stockbridge, and our three children. In my spare time I enjoy squash, running and skiing.

Fees: My fees range from £180 for an initial consultation to £110 for a follow up visit.
