I regularly see patients with facial pain and have a particular interest in temporomandibular disorders. During my higher training I gained experience in the full remit of treatments from conservative management strategies through to total alloplastic joint replacement. I have also more recently learnt minimally invasive diagnostic and therapeutic techniques such as temporomandibular joint (TMJ) arthroscopy and arthrocentesis. I have co-authored papers and book chapters on subjects as diverse as training in TMJ surgery, outcomes from alloplastic joint replacements, classifications systems for extended custom TMJ replacements and the non-surgical management of recurrent dislocation of the TMJ.
