After completing my medical degree at the University of Dundee, I embarked on specialist orthopaedic surgical training in Yorkshire. I was awarded a fellowship in trauma and orthopaedic surgery in 2017 by the Royal College of Surgeons of Edinburgh. Following this I completed two years of specialist hand and wrist fellowships: initially in Teesside, UK and then at Middlemore Hospital in Auckland, New Zealand. My hand surgery training was delivered by hand surgeons with backgrounds of both orthopaedic and plastic surgery. I learnt techniques from both disciplines. Upon completion of these fellowships, I was appointed as a Consultant Orthopaedic Surgeon in NHS Fife in 2019 where I specialise in adult hand and wrist conditions.

My surgical practice involves treating elective hand and wrist conditions such as; carpal tunnel syndrome, trigger digit and Dupuytrens disease. I also deal with hand and wrist trauma and problems related to trauma. I work closely with a team of professional colleagues to provide patients with a focused experience.

In my NHS role, I am involved in the training of higher surgical trainees and have taught on a number of courses related to hand and wrist surgery. I regularly attend the congresses of the British and European Hand surgical societies.
