I have recently completed a six month Hip Arthroscopy fellowship programme in Australia and looking forward to offering my newly acquired skill set. I am also keen to be involved in teaching, research, auditing and medical device development programmes.

Teaching and Training
During my time at Blackpool Victoria Hospital I have held the position of Faculty Tutor and Educational Supervisor of Orthopaedics. My responsibilities include attending regular educational meetings and coordinating induction arrangements for trainee SHOs/HOs. I also carry out regular appraisals of the junior staff and SpRs in Orthopaedics. As a teacher I am required to conduct interviews, support juniors and arrange the aforementioned education meetings. Finally, I am a Faculty Member for AO UK and the Basic Surgical Training course at Blackpool Victoria Hospital.
Audit and Research
I have represented the Orthopaedic department in audit activities as part of my role as lead clinician. Several audits have been completed, involving SpRs, SHOs, etc. The completion of the audit cycle is a top priority.
I carried out clinical and laboratory research in the EMG STUDIES OF LATERAL COLLATERAL LIGAMENT INJURIES OF THE ANKLE at John Moore’s University, Liverpool. The thesis for my M.Ch. (Orth) degree was based on this topic and later on was published in Journal "Foot and ankle surgery" 1999.

Clinical Excellence Awards
I have been awarded many Clinical Excellence points by the NHS Trust and aim to accumulate more in the future.
I am regularly appraised by senior colleagues and have yet to receive any negative feedback.
As former Clinical director of the Orthopaedic department at Blackpool Victoria hospital I was required to attend various NHS Trust meetings regarding proposed changes and innovations. It was also imperative to anticipate future work loads and prepare accordingly. In addition, I have taken part in Care Pathways development programmes.
Membership of the AO UK Faculty
As mentioned above, I am a faculty member of Arbeitsgemeinschaft für Osteosynthesefragen UK. I have held this position since 2005 and it calls upon my experience as an instructor and lecturer. The courses I have been part of have involved surgeons and theatre staff alike.
Courses and Presentations
To ensure that I remain on the cutting edge of advances in surgical techniques I frequently attend relevant national and international courses. I find them highly beneficial and am confident of being at the forefront of modern developments in Trauma and lower limb Orthopaedics.
Recent Presentations/Courses attended
- "Arthroscopic femoral osteochondroplasty for cam femoroacetabular impingement in patients over 60 years of age". Presented at the annual meeting of International Society of Hip Arthroscopy, Cancun, October 2010
- "An unusual arthroscopic observation of mass muscle contraction around the hip with surgery of the ligamentum teres". e-poster presentation at the annual meeting of International Society of Hip Arthroscopy, Cancun, October 2010
- Extreme Frontiers in Hip Arthroscopy
I am a Trustee (and former Chairman) of Abaseen Foundation UK, a registered charity which has been involved in improving the healthcare and educational needs of a large community in the north-west of Pakistan.
In 2005, I travelled to the Kohistan Valley in Pakistan during the aftermath of the most devastating earthquake to hit the country. The earthquake took 74,000 lives and left scores more in a life threatening condition. I volunteered my surgical abilities and performed approximately thirty operations over two stints. I dealt with critical injuries which involved multiple fractures and managed any post-injury complications.
I relish any opportunity to pursue the following hobbies: golf, mountain walking, cricket and photography. I am a member of the National Geographic Society, a regular reader of Scientific American and an avid follower of various space programmes.
