I am a Consultant Orthopaedic Surgeon. I qualified in 1995 from University of Wales College of Medicine with Commendation. Originally from Lancashire, I returned to the northwest in 1996 for my basic surgical training, which I completed in 1998. From 1999, I spent three years at the Manchester Medical School conducting research into how cells behave when human bone heals after it has broken.
Arthroscopic surgery is a surgical procedure to visualize, diagnose, and treat problems inside a joint with the help of a small, fiber-optic instrument consisting of a lens, light source, and video camera. The procedure is minimally invasive and can be carried out through a few small incisions.
