A bit of background: I trained in Medicine at the University of Cape Town before pursuing a surgical career, initially training was in the United Kingdom ( FRCS (Edinburgh) in 1999), then moving to Australia where I specialized in orthopaedic surgery in Perth, finishing in 2005.

I am fortunate to have trained in most of the English-speaking world, including a very interesting six months in the USA.

My main areas of interest are now hip, knee and shoulder surgery, both replacement and arthroscopy. This includes hip arthroscopy, anterior replacement of the hip, computer-assisted knee replacement and ACL reconstruction, reverse shoulder replacement and arthroscopic shoulder surgery.

I have been visiting Geraldton since 2006 and am founding partner of Geraldton Orthopaedics. I am always happy to consult country patients remotely via Skype.

I am currently Head of Department of Orthopaedics at Armadale Kelmscott Memorial Hospital (public work), where I have worked since 2006.

Research interests include using innovative technology to measure functional outcomes after knee and shoulder surgery, and optimizing recovery using remote monitoring.

I am a keen cyclist (reflected in my research interests) and enjoy keeping busy in the garden.
