Book an appointment with a consultant

Your visit to a Spire hospital may be affected by local coronavirus restrictions. Once you've made an online booking, we'll only contact you if your appointment needs to be held virtually. If you don't hear from us, your appointment will be face to face.

Come to your appointment alone: To support social distancing and help protect our staff, patients and consultants, we’re restricting access in our hospitals except for exceptional circumstances so please come alone to your appointment.

If you have any of the following symptoms, you will not be able to attend a face-to-face appointment. You should get a test and stay at home.

  • Recent onset of a new continuous cough
  • A high temperature
  • A loss of, or change in, normal sense of taste or smell (anosmia)

Please do not attend the hospital if you develop, or have had recent contact with anyone with the Covid symptoms listed above.

We do not offer Covid-19 testing as part of our private GP service.

Please read the latest coronavirus (COVID-19) information.

You can book appointments for yourself or for someone else using this online booking service. If you wish to book a follow up appointment, please contact the hospital to make these arrangements.

To book online and secure an appointment you will need to pay at the time of booking. Once you’ve chosen your appointment slot it will be held for 20 minutes while you complete the details needed to confirm.

We accept Mastercard and Visa credit and debit cards.

Consultant Orthopaedic Surgeon

MBBS, MRCS (Glasgow), FRCS (Tr and Orth)

Professional profile:

I am a specialist Orthopaedic surgeon who exclusively performs hip and knee surgery with particular interest in joint replacement. The ethos of my practice is to provide high quality, patient centred care while tailoring the treatment to each individual patient, based on the best possible evidence, which may include surgical or non-operative treatment. I completed my basic surgical training in East Anglia and Midlands before moving to the North East for my specialist training in orthopaedics and trauma. I undertook two fellowships working with eminent surgeons in distinguished centre of excellence. The first fellowship was in Auckland, New Zealand pioneering in hip/knee replacement and revision hip/knee replacement. The second fellowship was in Bristol, UK to further cement my joint replacement experience and pelvic reconstructive surgery. I took up a consultant post in Sunderland Royal Hospital in 2011.
