My Philosophy

Welcome to a different hand surgery experience.

How: I aim to wrap patients in genuine and authentic care with emotional intelligence and outstanding communication – everyone gets my work mobile number, for example and has open access to me.

I believe in open, honest and full transparency from treatment options to my new, fully-referenced consent forms. Educating patients is a central tenet of my strategy so you can make truly informed decisions about your own care. I offer:

  • Patient-focused care: Tailored treatment plans that emphasise conservative, non-surgical solutions whenever possible

  • Minimally invasive surgical techniques: Advanced options like ultrasound-guided carpal tunnel and trigger finger release.
  • Direct communication (WhatsApp) and rapid access to results: Reducing your anxiety and time wasted.

  • Focus on your comfort and convenience: Designed for time efficiency and a pain-free patient journey.
