I am co-lead for the neuromuscular service providing care for children with cerebral palsy and other neuromuscular conditions and am part of the paediatric and adult deformity service which manages problems with limb length equality, malalignment, fractures and fracture malunion or nonunion with the use of various surgical techniques including circular external fixators. As well as providing general paediatric orthopaedics care, I also provide adult trauma (fracture) surgery.

I have completed two fellowships in Paediatric Orthopaedics at Beit Cure International Hospital, Malawi and at the Children’s Hospital, Westmead, Sydney, Australia and I have worked in 3 major trauma centres and am trained in the use of circular frames in the management of trauma and deformity.
