I have a special interest in endoscopy and luminal gastroenterology. I perform upper and lower gastrointestinal endoscopy for the investigation and treatment of reflux symptoms, abdominal pain, alteration in bowel function and removal of polyps. I perform ERCP including Spyglass cholangioscopy for the investigation and treatment of diseases of the bile duct and pancreas. I have a lead role in quality assurance of endoscopy services locally and nationally. I have expertise in general gastroenterology, functional bowel disorders, gastrointestinal bleeding, medical pancreatology and autoimmune pancreatitis and IgG4 disease.
I have published papers in the fields of gastrointestinal bleeding, chronic pancreatitis, autoimmune pancreatitis and ERCP. I have ongoing involvement in clinical studies investigating treatments for gastrointestinal bleeding. I regularly lecture on a range of subjects related to endoscopy.

I graduated from the University of Edinburgh in 1994. Following postgraduate training in Edinburgh and Dundee I gained my RCP in 1997. My MD was awarded in 2005 for the study of the utility of thrombin injection for the treatment of bleeding peptic ulcer. I undertook a year long clinical fellow post in London in 2004 focussing on ERCP and hepatobiliary medicine and during this time developed my interest in autoimmune pancreatitis and IgG4 disease. In my current post as consultant gastroenterologist at the Royal Infirmary of Edinburgh I am professional lead for endoscopy services in Lothian. In my daily practice I see patients for investigation and treatment of a range of luminal gastroenterology symptoms and conditions. I am a JAG assessor for the quality assurance of endoscopy units nationally.
