I am a Consultant Orthopaedic Knee Surgeon based in Exeter and the South West.
I operate at the Royal Devon & Exeter NHS Hospital (Barrack Road, Exeter) and the Nuffield Health Exeter Hospital (Wonford Road, Exeter).
I specialise in treatments for problems of the knee. This includes the treatment of arthritis using knee replacement surgery (total or partial), and the treatment of problems of the meniscus and cartilage using advanced keyhole surgery techniques. I also offer advice on non-surgical treatments of the knee including injections.
I treat many patients with arthritis, cartilage problems and meniscal tears. I also treat fractures, tendon and joint injuries. I have a specialist interest in the treatment of patients with complex problems as a result of arthritis of the knee, as well as revision (re-do) operations to treat patients who have problems with knee replacements (such as painful knee replacements, infections and where the implant becomes loose or worn).
