Speciality Interest

  • Primary and Revision joint replacements – Hip, Knee & Shoulder
  • Complex joint replacements in dysplastic joints, stiff joints
  • Minimally invasive hip & knee replacements
  • Oseotomies, pelvic & acetabular trauma
  • Salvage & Limb reconstruction in skeletal tumors
  • Pediatric problems of the hip
  • Computer assisted minimal access joint replacement

My current fields of interest are evaluating strategies for minimal invasive surgeries, joint replacements and revision replacements of hip, knee and shoulder joints. We see more and more of technically demanding reconstructive challenges. Reconstruction following tumour resection has been my other field of interest. Over the next few years we intend to expand this into one of the advanced facilities in this area.
