He developed the  Cornwall Hip Surgery Service, offering a wide range of expertise  ranging from neonatal hip screening through to revision hip surgery.

In conjunction with his specialist hip surgery colleague, Mr Mark Norton, his work became focussed on  new methods of hip preservation surgery, minimally invasive pelvic osteotomies, hip resurfacing and replacement in high demand young adults.

Increasingly, the focus of most of his surgical procedures is on minimally invasive and arthroscopic hip surgery, offering low risk, rapid recovery approaches to a wide range of hip problems.

He was appointed as Director of the Trauma Division at the Royal Cornwall Hospitals Trust, responsible for managing the provision of Emergency Medicine, Trauma Surgery and Orthopaedic Surgery for Cornwall, and was subsequently appointed as Director of Clinical Coding and Procurement.

He established Cornwall Hip Clinics in 2012 in order to offer a premium private hip care facility and also an alternative NHS option for patients in Cornwall with hip problems.

Cornwall Hip Clinics operate in partnership with the Ramsay Duchy Hospital, and premier GP practices in Cornwall

In 2006 he co-founded ‘Trust Health Ltd’ to offer business management support to other groups of clinicians wishing to develop their own LLP partnerships working in conjunction with their local NHS and Private providers.

He is now Medical Director for Trust Health Ltd
