I started my radiology training in Glasgow, accumulating general radiology skills before deciding to pursue a career in Musculoskeletal Imaging. For my final year, I transferred to Kings College Hospital, London, as a subspecialty Musculoskeletal Imaging trainee for a year, receiving my Certification of Completion of Training (CCT) in 2012. I was then selected for two competitive back-to-back fellowships. The first was based at Royal National Orthopaedic Hospital in Stanmore, which is the largest soft tissue and bone tumour centre in UK as well as being United Kingdom’s leading specialist orthopaedic hospital. The second fellowship was based at McGill University Hospitals in Montreal, which is one of the largest healthcare providers in Canada.

I currently work as a Consultant Musculoskeletal Radiologist at University Hospitals of Leicester NHS Trust. The main focus of my practice is treating patients with joint and back problems, using MRI, CT, Ultrasound and X-rays for diagnosing the cause of their symptoms or treating them with appropriate intervention. I also maintain my general radiology skills particularly with respect to cross-sectional CT imaging, Ultrasound and x-ray reporting

My aim is to provide the best personal care for my patients by working closely with the patients and their physicians.
