I am an experienced Consultant Orthopaedic Hand Surgeon specialising in hand, wrist and upper limb peripheral nerve surgery.
I studied medicine at the University of Dundee, graduating in 2004. I completed my higher Trauma and Orthopaedic training in the West Midlands, and in addition to my surgical training I attained a Master’s degree in Trauma and Orthopaedic Surgery.
I completed the prestigious Advanced Training Post fellowship in hand surgery at the Queen Elizabeth hospital in Birmingham, and in 2018 I passed the British Hand Surgery Diploma, winning the ‘Vivien Lees’ Gold Medal for the highest score in this competitive 3 day examination.
The human hand is made up of the wrist, palm, and fingers and consists of 27 bones, 27 joints, 34 muscles, over 100 ligaments and tendons, and many blood vessels and nerves.
