    Background Information 
    Professional profile:

    My NHS and private work is purely vascular. This includes arterial reconstruction and venous surgery work. My special interests include varicose veins, renal access (fistulas) under local anaesthesia and major arterial work including distal bypass for limb salvage.

    I have had extensive training in vascular surgery at Dundee, Edinburgh and Hull prior to my current consultant appointment at the New Royal Infirmary, Edinburgh.

    Personal profile:

    Apart from operating on and assessing vascular patients I actively participate in research and audit of vascular surgery.

    I am married to Raheela (a dentist) and have two young boys. My outside interests (time permitting!) include squash, cricket and travelling.
