Jamie qualified in Belfast and worked as a junior doctor in Exeter, Bristol, Bath and London before spending time abroad in the Canadian Arctic, Barbados and New Zealand.
He joined the Orthopaedic Training Programme at Addenbrooke’s Hospital, Cambridge and was appointed as Orthopaedic Consultant Surgeon at Broomfield Hospital, Chelmsford in 1985.
He became Medical Director of the Chelmsford Knee Clinic in 1996, dealing with the full spectrum of knee problems from sports injuries to arthritis. This has allowed him to develop his surgical interests in early intervention in the arthritic knee with special focus in cartilage surgery, ligament instability, osteotomy, uni-compartmental and total knee replacement
Jamie has a special research interest with the Anglia Ruskin University into patients with ongoing knee pain following total knee replacement and runs a specific clinic for such patients at the Chelmsford Knee Clinic.
Jamie has a great deal of experience of this wide range of surgical options. He believes it is very important that patients have a choice of treatments depending where they are along the arthritic process.
