Matt qualified from St. George’s Hospital Medical School in 1995 gaining most of his surgical training in the South West Thames region, during which time he worked for Paul Calvert. It was Paul who inspired Matt to take up a career in shoulder surgery.
His expertise in shoulder surgery was attained from holding UK upper limb fellowship posts at Wrightington Upper Limb Unit and the Reading Shoulder Unit under the supervision of Mr Steve Copeland. He was then awarded the British Elbow and Shoulder Society North American Fellowship. In North America he spent time in the Mayo clinic (Rochester, Minnesota) the University of Washington in Seattle and Boston, mainly concentrating on upper limb sports injuries.
Matt is actively involved in teaching and research, being a regular faculty member on both national and international shoulder arthroscopy and joint replacement courses. He is actively involved in product design and holds several patents for products currently used in shoulder surgery.
