I initially qualified as a Physiotherapist but my interest in musculo-skeletal medicine inspired me to return to university so that I could complete my training, initially as a Doctor, but then subsequently specialising in orthopaedic surgery. I now enjoy a general orthopaedic practice treating both adult and paediatric conditions.
