Special Interests

Within Orthopaedic Surgery I have developed a particular interest in all aspects of knee surgery including joint replacement and Sports Injuries. However, as a result of my continued arthroscopic interest I have been able to maintain sub special interest in arthroscopic shoulder surgery.
