Get in Touch

Born and trained in South Africa, where I completed my dual qualification as a Medical Orthotist Prosthetist in 2013. My main interest and experience would be focused on Prosthetics, particularly Paediatric, multi-limbloss and sports prosthetics. Also focusing on high-end Microprocessor knees and Myo electric upper limb prosthetics.  
I enjoy getting to know and understand my clients and their specific roles, needs and activities to ensure each one is considered holistically when planning for their prostheses.

Seeing a client mobilising pain free and independently, often after years of being restricted, brings me great joy. Taking the time to listen and respect the input from the client plays a big role in my treatment. Apart from work I enjoy being with my family - happily married and proud father of two Scottish Terriers. I enjoy cooking, being outdoors with the dogs, traveling and experiencing what London has to offer. Being part of this dynamic team is only a pleasure.

Getting to know and understand my clients specific needs is paramount to
a giving them independence and mobility.
