Professional Profile

Chris has been a Consultant Hand and Upper Limb surgeon in Oxford since 2006, with a practice in hand, wrist, shoulder and elbow surgery. He graduated from the University of Bristol in 1993, with degrees in Medicine and Physiology, and undertook his initial surgical training in Bristol and Gloucester. He completed his orthopaedic and trauma surgery training in Oxford, working as a Clinical Lecturer at the University of Oxford. He has completed Fellowship training in hand, wrist and elbow surgery in the West Midlands at the Royal Orthopaedic Hospital, Diana, Princess of Wales Children’s Hospital and University Hospitals of Birmingham. He was awarded the Intercollegiate Board Examination in Orthopaedic and trauma Surgery in 2003.

Chris has published original clinical research in international journals on scaphoid fracture surgery, elbow replacement surgery and outcome assessment after elbow surgery. He is actively involved in research projects on scaphoid surgery and shoulder rotator cuff repair, and in the teaching and training of medical students and orthopaedic trainees in Oxford. He edits the Orthopaedic modules of the Royal College of Surgeons of England Surgical Training programme (newSTEP) and reviews articles for the leading European orthopaedic journal.

Away from medicine, Chris has recently retired from high-level competitive swimming, having previously played water-polo for the British club champions in national and European competitions. He enjoys recreational sport and lives in Oxford with his family.
