Professional profile:

JFN 2016

I have been a consultant in Norwich for 24 years and enjoy a busy clinical practice of general orthopaedics and trauma surgery. The greater part of this practice consists of major joint replacement surgery and I have carried out over 6,000 hip and knee replacement operations.

I am particularly stimulated by complex revision problems at both the hip and knee, and have a substantial experience of reconstructive surgery both with and without bone grafting techniques. Click Here for further info on Hip and Knee surgery.

Hip Replacement X-rayI have been Clinical Director, examined for the Intercollegiate Speciality Board in Orthopaedics for the Royal Colleges of Surgeons and reviewed for a number of Journals including the Journal of Bone and Joint Surgery and Hip International. I carry out Invited Reviews for the Royal College of Surgeons and Fitness to Practice Assessments on behalf of the General Medical Council. I was chaired The Consultant Staff Committee at the Norfolk and Norwich University Hospital before joining The Council of Governors.

In 2010 I was rated as one of the best hip surgeons in the country by 50 other senior hip surgeons (Daily Mail).

From 2015 to 2016, I was President of The British Hip Society.
