Background Information

After qualifying in 1969 and obtaining a Masters Degree in general surgery, I worked as a Specialist General Surgeon; in India and then Iran until 1979.  I then settled in the UK, gaining significant experience and training in orthopaedics along with two Fellowships from The Royal Colleges and a further Masters Degree from London University. 
Other than general orthopaedic surgery, my special interest lies in lower limb surgery. This includes arthroscopies, replacement of ankle and toe joints and correction of various deformities of the foot.  It gives me enormous satisfaction to see the physical and emotional changes these procedures bring to my patients.  I also practice paediatric orthopaedics. 
I devote a considerable amount of my time to teaching and training (both in the UK and abroad) undergraduate/postgraduate doctors, GP's and paramedic staff. 
By way of relaxation, one of my great passions is poetry which I have been reading and writing since childhood. My wife and I also share a love of travelling.
