I am a Consultant Orthopaedic Surgeon with a specialist interest in foot and ankle surgery. I deal with all aspects of foot and ankle problems ranging from bunion correction and neuroma surgery to foot and ankle fusion and management of deformity. I have expertise in treating arthritis and sports injures in the foot and ankle, as well as surgical and non-surgical solutions for Achilles and plantar fascia problems.

After completing my surgical training in Edinburgh, I undertook one year of specialist fellowship training at the Vancouver General Hospital in Canada. Following this, I was appointed as a Consultant Orthopaedic Surgeon in NHS Fife where I treat complex foot and ankle problems.

I am an Honorary Clinical Senior Lecturer at the University of Edinburgh and the Head of Education for EduSurg Ltd. I was the co-author of a textbook titled Trauma Vivas for the FRCS, and co-authored a chapter in The Oxford Textbook of the Fundamentals of Surgery.

I am also a tutor for the Master of Surgery in Trauma and Orthopaedics at the Royal College of Surgeons of Edinburgh, where I also sit on the Board of Examiners. As a surgical trainer in the NHS, I am a Clinical Supervisor for the South-East Scotland Orthopaedic Surgical Training Programme.
