In 2011 I worked in Bilbao, Spain as a Hand Surgeon.


During the years I have collected a lot of experience in most aspects of Hand Surgery both trauma and elective. Also, I have a consultative approach to patients, and always happy to discuss alternative treatment options, other than surgery trying to fully fit everyone’s needs.

I regularly attend to congresses, both national and international to keep my practice up-to-date.

My hand surgery pracice ranges from injuries (fractures, ligament disrutions, joint dislocations etc.) to degenerative conditions (small joint OA, thumb basal joint arthritis), compression neuropathies (carpal tunnel, cubital tunnel syndrome), Dupuytren’s disease, trigger fingers, but also post traumatic conditions, including failed previous treatment.

Please feel free to book an appointment for a consultation!
