Background Information 
Professional profile:

I graduated from St Bartholomew’s Hospital Medical College in London and completed my surgical training within Wessex. My practice involves the care of patients with all forms of colorectal disease and emergency abdominal surgery. I perform all types of colorectal and general surgery including the treatment of bowel cancer, inflammatory bowel disease and hernias. I have a major interest in laparoscopic or ‘keyhole’ surgery. I work within a multi-disciplinary team of colorectal surgeons, specialist radiologists, oncologists, gastroenterologists & nurse specialists. Privately I operate at the Spire Hospital, Southampton.

Personal profile:

I am married to my wife Kate and have 2 young children. I enjoy the outdoors. I am a keen skier and run & mountain bike regularly in the New Forest.
