A Multi-Skilled Childrens Orthopaedic Surgeon in Bristol

Paediatric Orthopaedics

Offering expert treatment when your little one suffers with a musculoskeletal condition, I provide specialist paediatric orthopaedic care as a professional with numerous qualifications and experience.


Young Adult Orthopaedics

I also specialise in the assessment and treatment of specific orthopaedic conditions that affect young adults. With specialist fellowship training in this area, you can trust me for high-quality treatment and care.


Medico-Legal Work

As part of my wide-ranging services, I handle a variety of files ranging from general advice to claims, complaints, and regulatory issues. My medio-legal work is based on paediatric orthopaedics and young adult hip work.
