Research

I have successfully completed my Masters in Orthopaedic Surgery, my thesis being on the fixation of proximal humerus fractures. I have also been involved in both basic science and clinical research studies. Through the University of Liverpool I was involved in projects looking at the role of MMPs in soft tissue sarcoma, Dupuytren’s disease and rotator cuff disease. The results have been presented in both British and American Orthopaedic Research Societies. I was the clinical lead in a level I prospective randomised study on arthroscopic shoulder stabilisation and I have been involved in several other retrospective and prospective studies which have been presented at various international meetings and published in peer reviewed journals.

Completed Research Projects

  • Outcome of cuff repair & SAD following calcium removal versus calcium removal & SAD
  • Arthroscopic labral tears repair with capsular plication reinforcement
  • Correlation of clinical, MRI scan and arthroscopy findings in patients with SLAP lesions
  • Inter-observer reliability and intra-observer reproducibility of the Weber classification system of ankle fracture
  • Arthroscopic stabilisation of the shoulder: a prospective randomised study of absorbable versus non-absorbable suture anchors
  • Mid term results of PlantTan plate for proximal humerus fracture (MCh Thesis)
  • Arthroscopic release of coraco-humeral ligament for resistant frozen shoulder
  • Clavicular hook plate for lateral end fractures
  • Degeneration or remodelling: MMPs in the torn rotator cuff
  • Vascularity, hypoxia & necrosis in soft tissue neoplasms of the extremities
  • Matrix metalloproteinases & degenerative changes in the torn rotator cuff
  • Gelatinase MMPS in palmar fibromatosis: Immunohistochemistry & Zymography
