"I treat all of my patients in the way that I would like to be treated myself. I am a very active sportsman and have previously competed at elite level in marathon running, rowed for Oxford University, cycled for Oxford University and I continue to compete in running, cycling and triathlon. As a sportsperson I understand the impact of sports injuries and the role of fast, precise, reliable surgery, using up to the minute techniques with the best possible rehabilitation. I take great pride in getting all of my patients back to their sporting pastimes as fast as is appropriate and in better condition than before they were injured."
