Academic background

In 2013, Hinchingbrooke Hospital, Huntingdon, I was appointed as a Consultant Orthopaedic Surgeon. I have an elective and emergency practice sub-specialising in shoulder and elbow surgery. My particular interests include open and arthroscopic shoulder surgery for conditions, such as rotator cuff tears, recurrent instability and dislocated acromio-clavicular joints. I am experienced and perform all types of shoulder replacement. Additionally, I am the clinical governance lead at Hinchingbrooke Hospital, where I received a clinical excellence award (in 2017) for developing and delivering state of the art shoulder and elbow service.

I underwent my basic medical training at Christian Medical College (1987-1993) in India. I spent 2 years working there as a medical officer in rural mission hospitals (1993-1995), before further pursuing higher surgical training as a specialist registrar in Trauma & Orthopaedics (1995-1998). I worked at Christian Medical College, adopting multiple academic positions, such as that of a Senior Registrar, Lecturer & Reader of Orthopaedics; as well as practicing and training medical students and specialist registrars (1999-2004). I trained in Yeovil (2004 – 2007) and obtained the FRCS in Trauma and Orthopaedics.
