Special Interests I completed my research degree (MD) within the Leeds Musculoskeletal Biomedical Research Unit in 2012. This involved clinical trials for people with painful osteoarthritis of the knee and hand, trialling different medications to target inflammation (synovitis) within the joints and assesing the response using both ultrasound and magnetic resonance imaging (MRI). I retain a strong clinical interest in treating patients with osteoarthritis.
I also have a special interest in treating osteoporosis.
I currently run the Joint Inejction Clinic at Chapel Allerton Hospital.
