Personal approach statement

"I treat all of my patients in the way that I would like to be treated myself.  I am a very active sportsman and have previously competed at elite level in marathon running, rowed for Oxford University, and more recently I have represented GB in age group cycling at the World Championships on three occasions.  As a sportsperson I understand the impact of sports injuries and the role of fast, precise, reliable surgery, using up to the minute techniques with the best possible rehabilitation to achieve great results.  I take great pride in getting all of my patients back to their sporting pastimes as fast as is appropriate and in better condition than before they were injured."

He loves all forms of sport and treating sports people. He has a specialist sports injuries practice and has experienced many of the injuries that his patients present with. He uses up to the minute technology to ensure the best outcomes for his patients and strives to give all of his patients the same standard of care that elite athletes enjoy.
