Professional Profile

I am an orthopaedic surgeon with subspecialty in upper limb surgery and paediatric orthopaedics.

I am strongly committed to both my public and private practice. I fully support and give my time to train our junior doctors.

My work at the public hospital includes treating children and adolescents with orthopaedic conditions, particularly spinal deformities.

At my private rooms & sports clinics I see patients with hand, elbow, shoulder and knee conditions. Of particular interest to me are sports related injuries and arthroscopic (keyhole) surgery.
