Overview

Having worked in the NHS for nearly 14 years, I have encountered the profound impact health services research has on my daily practice. Inspired by this, I have made clinical research an integrated part of my work as a Trauma and Orthopaedic surgeon. 

Currently, I split my time between my medical practice as a trainee registrar across the South West, and as an NIHR Clinical Lecturer at the University of Exeter. In 2018 I completed my doctoral research assessing contemporary study designs in elbow tendinopathy. 

I have a particular interest in the use of Patient-Reported Outcome Measures (PROMs) as a method to quantify and interpret how surgical management affects patients' lives. My research in this area is focused on the use of advanced Computer Adaptive Tests (CATs), whereby we are attempting to use a small number of patient-specific questions to accurately assess the impact of their medical problem.   

I am also involved in a portfolio of studies assessing the survival of joints replacements. Our work on hip and knee replacements has sought to evaluate how long a joint replacement can be expected to last. The results have been published as open access articles in The Lancet, and further work on shoulder and elbow replacements is being undertaken.

Research

Research interests

My research interests are focused around interventions in trauma and orthopaedic surgery and health and policy research

Ongoing research interests;

Patient-Reported Outcome Measures (PROMs)

Assessing the cross-cultural adaptation of the PROMIS system for use in UK populations. 

The impact of joint arthroplasty on PROMs. 

The patient focussed impact of medical and surgical interventions on shoulder and elbow pathology.

Arthroplasty Survival 

Assessing the long-term survival of shoulder and elbow replacements through systematic review and meta-analysis of case series and glocal arthroplasty registry reports. 

Shoulder Research 

Research assessing the impact of suprascapular nerve block and ablation and the long-term survival of total shoulder replacements.

The use of the UK Biobank to identify phenotypic and genetic associations with frozen shoulder. 

Elbow Research 

DEfining Tennis Elbow CharacTeristics (DETECT): A pilot cross-sectional study assessing the prevalence of elbow pathology in an asymptomatic population using Ultrasound and Magnetic Resonance Imaging

Hemiarthroplasty Or Total elbow replacement for trauma (HOT trial): A feasibility trial assessing the utilisation of partial or full elbow replacement for unreconstructable elbow fractures.
