    Background Information 
    Professional profile:

    My work includes aesthetic and reconstructive surgery, and surgery of the hand and wrist.

    Hand and Wrist: 
    I treat most hand and wrist problems, including: carpal tunnel syndrome, Dupuytrens disease, arthritis, nerve injury, and trauma of soft-tissues, bones and ligaments. I perform wrist-arthroscopy and children’s hand surgery. Almost all hand surgery is day-case, and for the majority of procedures the patient is awake.

    I perform surgery for skin cancer and scarring.

    I try and give advice that is holistic and balanced. For primary breast surgery, and for revision surgery, I use anatomical implants made by Natrelle. Most patients stay one night in hospital: women undergoing breast reduction tend to stay two nights. 
For the abdomen I carry out abdominal scar revision, liposuction, and abdominoplasty. In the head and neck I carry out prominent ear correction, eye-lid surgery, rhinoplasty, and face-lift surgery (I use short-scar techniques: lateral SMASectomy or SMAS plication). Patients considering cosmetic surgery are welcome to return for a second consultation at no-charge to double check the plans for surgery, answer any further questions, and to complete the consent process.

    Personal profile:

    I was appointed as Consultant at Addenbrookes Hospital Cambridge in 2005, and was the Clinical Director for Plastic Surgery between 2010 and 2014. I qualified as a doctor at Oxford University in 1991. My general surgical training was at hospitals in the South of England. I received a Doctorate (DM) from Oxford University for two years of full-time research into reconstructive burns surgery at the Blond-McIndoe Centre. My plastic surgery training was at the Queen Victoria Hospital East Grinstead, as well as Salisbury, Mount Vernon, Lister, and Addenbrookes Hospitals. 

    I was awarded the Specialist Fellowship in Plastic Surgery (FRCS Plast) in 2003, and was entered onto the General Medical Council Specialist Register for plastic surgery in 2004. I was the fellow in hand surgery with the Victorian Hand Surgery Associates at St Vincent’s Hospital in Melbourne, Australia, and was the senior-fellow in plastic surgery at St James’s Hospital in Leeds. 

    I am a full member of the British Association of Aesthetic Plastic Surgeons (BAAPS), the British Association of Plastic Reconstructive and Aesthetic Surgeons (BAPRAS), and was elected to the council of the British Society for Surgery of the Hand (BSSH). 

    I am the director of the Cambridge Lower Limb Flap course, and am the Addenbrooke’s Hospital Foundation Year 1-doctor programme director. I have published in the fields of basic science, burn-care, hand-surgery, patient-safety, children’s hand surgery, cosmetic, plastic and reconstructive surgery. I teach anatomy and plastic surgery in Cambridge, and am a regular faculty member for courses in plastic and hand surgery for the Royal College of Surgeons, BSSH and BAPRAS.
