About Me:

 

I am a Consultant Hand and Upper Limb Surgeon and my NHS practice is based at the Brighton and Sussex University Hospital Trust;  this includes Haywards Heath Princess Royal Hospital and The Royal Sussex County Hospital.

I specialise in the following areas of Orthopaedics:

 

  • Hand, wrist and elbow conditions, injuries (including soft tissue sports injuries) and treatments, including:

  • Elbow surgery

  • Hand surgery

  • Wrist Surgery

Making An Appointment:

 

In addition to my NHS practice, I run a Private Practice, and see and treat patients at :

Nuffield Health Brighton Hospital (based in Woodingdean)


I hold regular New Patient and Review Clinic appointments as follows:

 

  • Monday afternoons (2-5pm): Nuffield Health Brighton Hospital (Woodingdean)

 

The cost of a New Patient Appointment/Assessment is £200.

The cost of a Review Appointment is £100.

 

I am happy to see both privately funded (self-pay) patients and those covered by insurance companies/third parties.


I am fee assured, which means I work within both the limits set by most major insurance companies.

 

The Bookings Team will be happy to organise an appointment for you:

Insurance Companies

I am fee assured with all major insurance companies, including:

Consultation: What to Expect

In the clinic when we first meet, I will take a history and examine you.  It may be possible to carry out some treatment in the clinic setting, such as an injection into a joint or soft tissue.

 

A new patient consultation will take approximately

30 minutes.

A review appointment will take approximately

15 minutes.

 

Sometimes it may be necessary to carry out further investigations to help plan treatment, such as x-rays, scans or nerve studies and these are discussed and organised by me at our initial consultation and we will review the results together at a subsequent appointment.

 

If surgery is necessary, we will discuss the procedure and expected outcome in detail, so you know exactly what to expect.  I will liaise with you and arrange a date that is mutually convenient and arrange an anaesthetist if a general anaesthetic or sedation is required.  Surgery will take place on site at  Nuffield Brighton Hospital.
