Training and consulting

He continues to teach and train surgeons both locally and internationally on minimally invasive surgery, as well as presenting in courses and congresses both globally and locally. These newer techniques have been shown to have very difficult learning curves, and training is therefore essential for surgeons new to these fields. He does master instructor consultancy on an international platform, training surgeons on arthroscopic and minimally invasive foot and ankle procedures.
