RESTORING YOUR HANDS AND HELPING YOU RECOVER

About Me

Values:

I am committed to taking care of you and believe in shared decision making and guiding you to help make the right decision for your treatment. The service I provide is based on the values of compassion, commitment and accountability.

Inspiration:

Whilst in Medical School I was inspired by reading about Dr Paul Brand, the Britishmissionary surgeon, who travelled to India and pioneered the tendon transfer techniques still used today to allow the hands and feet of leprosy patients to function properly once again.

Training:

Following an intensive Orthopaedic training on the prestigious Percivall Pott Rotation in London, I pursued my training in hand surgery through overseas fellowships awarded by The British Society for Surgery of the Hand, The British Orthopaedic Trainees Association and the AO Foundation.

These fellowships enhanced by understanding of hand and wrist pathology and the various treatments for these problems through working with some of the giants in hand and wrist surgery in the US, India, Spain and France.

On my return I then completed a years hand fellowship at the world renowned Pulvertaft Hand Unit in Derby. I briefly worked as a Consultant at Chesterfield prior to taking up my current post as a full time Hand and Wrist Surgeon at Barking Havering and Redbridge NHS Trust.

Passion:

My passion lies in understanding and treating predominantly wrist pathology from fractures to arthritis to instability. I offer open and keyhole surgery as appropriate to the condition. I treat a wide range of hand conditions from nerve compression, ganglions, stiff joints to Dupuytren’s disease.

Teaching and Training responsibilities:

As part of my teaching responsibilities I am part of the faculty on the Miller FRCS Course and the Chesterfield FRCS Course for Orthopaedic trainees. I am also involved in the training of Registrars from three London Rotations who pass through our trust. I have contributed to UCL medical student online teaching moodle in Orthopedics and also to the Queen Mary’s MSc in Trauma program.

Research Interests:

I believe that research is important in advancing our understanding of disease and its treatment. I am currently Principal Investigator at Barking Havering and Redbridge Hospital on two national level Randomised Control trials one related to fracture healing and another related to scaphoid fractures.

Social:

I enjoy travelling,pencil sketching, tennis, football and badminton. I support Medecins Sans Frontieres and Cancer Research UK.
