Related experience


In my recent research, I have focused on various aspects of orthopaedic surgery and musculoskeletal health. One of my studies investigated minimally invasive hallux valgus correction and compared its outcomes with open surgery, published in The Foot. Another study examined radicular arm pain, published in the British Journal of Hospital Medicine, and another explored metastatic spinal cord compression in the same journal.  Additionally, I have contributed to research on injuries to the tibiofibular syndesmosis, published in The Journal of Bone & Joint Surgery.

In terms of presentations, I have presented research on minimally invasive hallux valgus correction and surgical site infections after fixation of unstable ankle fractures at the Virtual EFORT Congress. I also presented findings on the Rottinger approach for hip fracture surgery, focusing on its cost and resource-saving benefits in the NHS, UK, at the 1st Virtual EFORT Congress.

Overall, my research covers a range of orthopaedic topics, from surgical techniques to the advancement of orthopaedic care and patient outcomes.
