His passion for plastic surgery emerged whilst at the Mayo Clinic in Rochester, Minnesota, USA marking the beginning of his career in plastic surgery. Returning to England, he trained for five years in surgical rotation at St James's University Hospital, Leeds. His training enabled him to work with many of the leading plastic and cosmetic surgeons in the Greater London area and in Canniesburn Hospital, Glasgow. Appointed as Consultant Plastic Surgeon at The Glasgow Royal Infirmary Hospitals in 1995, David later took up a new appointment as Consultant Plastic Surgeon at Wexham Park Hospital and King Edward VII Hospital, Windsor, taking over from his mentor in cosmetic surgery, Mr Magdy Saad, who retired from the NHS.
Working for the NHS as a Consultant Plastic Surgeon, David led the cleft lip and palate team regularly carrying out neonatal cleft lip repairs until the service recently consolidated. He has an interest in breast reconstruction and is particularly renowned for using micro-surgical methods for this. Since December 2006 David has worked solely in private practice.
He has worked in the spirit and tradition of his mentor Mr Magdy Saad continuing the thriving cosmetic surgery practice for over ten years. Patients are regularly referred to him from all over the UK, Europe and overseas including the Middle East and USA. David attends international meetings to keep in the forefront of cosmetic surgery and he has made presentations at both international and national meetings.
