    I qualified in India and moved to the UK in the early nineties. After working as a junior resident in Wales and Liverpool, I was selected for orthopaedic registrar training in the Liverpool and Sheffield higher surgical training programme after which I sub-specialised in hand surgery at Wrightington hospital in Lancashire.  I subsequently undertook fellowships at Kings College hospital in London and the world famous May clinic in Rochester USA before achieving consultant status at Medway Maritime hospital.
