Surgical training

I competed my specialist orthopaedic training in North-West on Manchester rotation in year 2006. During my training I also worked at famous Robert Jones & Agnes Hunt Orthopaedic Hospital in Oswestry and Queen’s Medical Centre in Nottingham. Having established an interest in management of complex orthopaedic problems affecting Hip and Knee joints I also undertook further specialist training in UK and overseas at the end of training programme.

Fellowship

I went to Toronto, Canada in July 2006 for 6 months fellowship at the Toronto East General Hospital. During this period I worked with Drs Maistrelli, Kraemer and Wong and gained extensive experience in lower limb arthroplasty particularly uncemented hip replacements and revision surgery. I also had an opportunity to visit Dr John Cameron at the Sunnybrook Orthopaedic and Arthritis Hospital in Toronto to see the complex Osteotomies around the Knee joint. I also visited Dr Allan Gross, who has extensive experience of using allografts in revision hip and knee surgery, at the Mount Sinai Hospital in Toronto.

On return from Canada, I joined a fellowship at The University Hospital of Leicester, which has a large arthroplasty Unit. I worked with Mr Godsiff, Mr Power and Mr Birtwhistle and had an excellent training in all aspects of knee surgery including soft tissue surgery and hip arthroplasty including revision surgery. I worked in Leicester for just over 7 months before I was appointed at The University Hospital of South Manchester in September 2007.

Journal reviews

I regularly review the scientific articles for publication the following International Journals:

Bone and Joint Journal
Journal of Orthopaedics and Traumatology
The Knee Journal

Teaching

I am regularly involved in teaching of Medical students and Orthopaedic trainees. I also teach on Cadaveric courses for Core Trainees. I am a faculty member for AO basic Principles course for Fracture Fixation
