Lead Orthopaedic Trauma Consultant; Trauma Research Lead. Cambridge University Hospitals
As the lead Orthopaedic Trauma surgeon for Cambridge University Hospitals, I have a particular interest in pelvic and acetabular surgery, and complex lower limb trauma. My main research interest is in clinical trials, and their reporting using validated patient reported outcome measures.
I am Chief Investigator for KFORT – a randomised trial comparing fixation vs replacement for elderly patients sustaining a distal femur (thigh bone) fracture. I have been awarded a £250,000 National Institute for Health Research (NIHR) grant to undertake this 3 year, 7 centre study.
I have organised and am chairing the 1st National Pelvic and Acetabular Forum for consultants on behalf of the Orthopaedic Trauma Society at the Cambridge Surgical Centre. I have organised and chaired 2 trauma cadaveric approaches for trainees also at the Cambridge Surgical Centre.
