Professional Profile:  After graduating from University of Edinburgh Medical School, I undertook surgical training in Edinburgh, followed by Orthopaedic training in Oxford and Edinburgh.

I completed my training with Specialist Fellowships in Brisbane, Australia and Edinburgh, and was then appointed as a Consultant in the Arthroplasty Service in Edinburgh.

My practice mainly involves hip and knee joint replacement and revision joint replacement surgery. Since becoming a consultant I have developed an interest in Young Adult Hip Disorders, many of whom do not need joint replacement and have a condition called Femoro-Acetabular (Hip) Impingement (FAI). I am now able to offer Arthroscopic Hip Surgery for the management of this problem. Over the last 10 years I have worked with the anaesthetist Dr John Wilson, who is also a specialist in pain management.

My NHS practice is based at the Royal Infirmary of Edinburgh.

Personal Profile: Originally from Northern Ireland, I have lived in Edinburgh for 30 years and have three daughters. My interests include rugby and cycling to keep fit.

Fees: My fees range from £250 for an initial consultation to £120 for a follow up visit.

If you are insured please check the Fee Schedule, which we are required to make available to patients according to the Competition and Marketing Authority (CMA)

For patients self-funding their surgical treatment please call the ‘Self Pay Team’ at the Spire Edinburgh Hospitals on 0131 316 2507

Professional Memberships: British Hip Society, British Orthopaedic Association, Royal College of Surgeons of Edinburgh.
