CONSULTANT
Consultant Tumours, Arthroplasty & Adult Reconstruction
(Jul 2015 – Mar 2017)
Royal Liverpool & Broadgreen University Hospital
My practice as a consultant is predominantly with primary and revision Arthroplasty, musculoskeletal tumours and arthroscopic surgery. I also have special interest in complex trauma, periprosthetic fractures and periarticular fractures. My current focus is on developing strategies for our hospital to constantly improve the patient experience and patient reported outcomes in joint replacement surgery.
-----------------------------------------------------------------

FELLOWSHIPS
1. Arthroplasty Fellowship Lower limb Arthroplasty & Adult reconstruction
(Aug 2014 – Aug 2015)
Royal Liverpool & Broadgreen University Hospital
Royal Liverpool & Broadgreen is one of the country’s busiest units with a huge revision arthroplasty burden from the failing metal on metal hip replacements. Apart from independent operating and out-patient clinics, I have gained a lot of experience on the management and teaching front which will stand me in good stead for the future. This fellowship has provided me with an extensive experience in revision hip Arthroplasty and hip arthroscopy, apart from large volume complex primary hip replacements. The job has also refined my clinical skills and knowledge in managing metastatic bone disease and complex trauma including periprosthetic fractures.

2. Tumour Fellowship Musculoskeletal Tumours & Arthroplasty
(Apr 2013 – Oct 2013)
Royal National Orthopaedic Hospital, Stanmore
RNOH, Stanmore is one of the premier hospitals in the world of musculoskeletal oncology. The weekly multidisciplinary meeting discussed well over 150 tertiary referrals every week. I gained valuable experience in operative and non-operative management of primary and secondary musculoskeletal tumours. I interacted regularly with the design engineers of custom-made tumour prosthesis. I understand the issues and logistics behind setting up a musculoskeletal tumour unit.

3. BOTA Travelling Fellow Orthopaedic Oncology
(Apr 2013 – Oct 2013)
Tata Memorial Hospital, Mumbai
The travelling fellowship award provided me with a great opportunity to visit one of the finest cancer centres in the world. The set up in Mumbai has given me a great insight into providing evidence-based health care in a cost effective manner.
