    How I CAN Help


     My aim is to promptly offer you a consultation, listen carefully to you and your symptoms, arrange the necessary investigations, and offer you prompt treatment to get you the best possible recovery. 

    After listening to your symptoms, I will examine your hip and any other areas necessary. I have the full range of diagnostic services at your disposal to get to the cause of your symptoms. I can give advise and recommend physiotherapy if necessary. The two most operations I perform are:  


    Hip arthroscopy

      Hip arthroscopy is a day case procedure for treating femoroacetabular impingement using key holes on the outside of your hip. Extensive reshaping of  abnormal bone around your hip and repairs of  the labrum are performed.


    If you have arthritis which is not being controlled with simple measures, a hip replacement will help eradicate your pain. There are a range of hip replacements which I perform, tailored to the individual needs of each patient. 90% of patients are happy with the results of surgery.
