As a fellowship trained Hip Arthroscopy surgeon, it is always a pleasure to see any patient who is struggling with conservative active therapy. I regularly see patients suffering from typical pain from labral tears, CAM and pincer impingement and have successfully returned them to their targeted athletic / sporting goals. My aim is to preserve the hip or knee joint where possible. I have developed a multidisciplinary super team protocol for regenerative adult stem cell therapy using the patients own bone marrow cells augmented with collagen scaffolds to preserve their joints, even in the face of focal wear and tear. Areas of expertise also extend to delivering pain relief from trochanteric bursitis, hip & buttock pain & ITB syndrome and lower leg pain as these conditions often occur in conjunction with active patients and people suffering from arthritis. In patients with arthritis, I provide an exceptional hip and knee replacement service with an enhanced rehabilitation regime and have a cohort of very happy customers.
