Research interests

My research ineterests include the assessment of outcomes following hip and knee surgery, and evaluating the behaviour of different bearing surfaces and materials used in total hip and knee replacements. I have successfully completed a research doctorate ? MD (Res) at University College London studying the biological effects of wear particles generated from total hip replacements. I have presented and published widely on key aspects of hip and knee surgery, and continues to conduct research looking at implant design, performance, wear patterns and outcomes of total hip and knee arthroplasty
