I am a hospital consultant in general surgery. My particular areas of interest are colorectal surgery, colorectal oncology and laparoscopic surgery. I have completed a National Laparoscopic Fellowship and I have completed over 250 laparoscopic colorectal resections, including emergency colorectal resections. I am a competent endoscopist performing diagnostic OGD and colonoscopy and therapeutic colonoscopy. I also support the colorectal cancer family history clinic and surveillance programme.
I am competent in all aspects of colo-proctology including treatment of piles and fissures, rectal prolapse and pelvic floor disorders. I am also trained in modern haemorrhoid surgery including THD (Transhaemorrhoidal Doppler artery ligation).
My practice also includes the management of complex inflammatory bowel disease.
As a General surgeon I also perform hernia surgery (open or laparoscopic) and I am developing a practice in complex hernia surgery and abdominal wall reconstruction having experienced a busy tertiary referral practice in this, also during my fellowship. I am also happy to manage simple lumps and bumps and minor general surgery procedures.
