Hello, Mr MW Consultant Orthopaedic Hand and Trauma Surgeon here from Medico-Legal and Neuroscience Partnership. I am based in Birmingham. I obtained my medical degree from the Royal Free Hospital Medical School, London, in 1977. I became a Fellow of the Royal College of Surgeons in Edinburgh in 1982. I began my training in orthopaedics in 1983 and hold the Orthopaedic Fellowship of the Royal College of Surgeons (1987). I spent an additional year training in hand surgery at the Christine Kleinert Institute, Louisville, Kentucky.
I have been a Consultant Orthopaedic Surgeon since 1993 and practice at the Royal Orthopaedic Hospital N.H.S. Trust and University Hospital, Queen Elizabeth, Birmingham (teaching hospitals). My main interest is hand and upper limb surgery. I have had a wide exposure to treatment of multiple and isolated trauma, rheumatoid arthritis, nerve and wrist injuries. I am a member of the British Orthopaedic Association and of the British Society for Surgery of the Hand. I am registered in the Expert Witness Directory (2013).
During my training and as a consultant, I have had over twenty years experience of providing medico-legal reports for both claimants and defendants. This has included court experience as an expert witness. As a consultant, I have received more requests for providing reports for hand or upper extremity conditions in relation to work activity together with disability assessment following injury. I have acted as an expert witness in negligence cases.
My interests as an Orthopaedic Surgeon are:
- Rheumatoid and osteoarthritis of the hand, wrist and elbow conditions
- Reconstructive surgery for acute injury of tendons, fracture or nerve injury
- Assessment of upper extremity pain in relation to work, together with postural advice and an exercise program
- Diagnosis and management of complex regional pain syndrome
- Surgery for trigger finger, ganglion and bone and soft tissue cysts
- Tendon transfer for neurological conditions
- Collagenase for the treatment of Dupuytren’s disease/Xiapex
