Are you struggling with shoulder pain?

I am specialist shoulder surgeon in Cardiff with a holistic approach to shoulder problems. My practice has evolved to become specialised in soft tissue and sports injuries with specific interest in the latest arthroscopic techniques.

Growing up in Cardiff, I attended university in Nottingham, returning to Wales for my surgical training. I completed two fellowships in shoulder surgery and sports injury in Sydney, Australia, where I trained in arthroscopy and minimally invasive surgery.

Patient care

My first priority is always the well-being and satisfaction of my patients. I strive to provide individualised, compassionate care that addresses each patient’s unique needs and concerns.


I conduct myself in an ethical and professional manner at all times, and strive to maintain the highest standards of excellence in my practice.


I believe in working closely with my patients, their families, and other members of the healthcare team to develop a comprehensive treatment plan that addresses all aspects of their condition.

Have you injured your shoulder?

My primary focus is always to try the best for all patients, and make sure that non-surgical options are explored and maximised. I therefore work closely with other colleagues and therapists in the field to achieve this level of treatment. I am an active member of the British Elbow and Shoulder Society. I regularly present my latest research projects. I have been a consultant in South Wales for approximately 20 years with a wealth of experience in the field.

Is your shoulder stopping you achieving your goals?

I am an Honorary Surgeon to the Welsh Rugby Union, English Rugby Union, the welsh rugby regions and the majority of English Rugby Premiership teams in the south of England. In addition, I treat several football and cricket teams in the south of the UK.
