I am a Consultant Plastic and Reconstructive surgeon at the Spire Lea and at Addenbrooke's Hospital, Cambridge. Having graduated from Cambridge University I went on to specialise in plastic surgery and have trained in centres both within the UK and Internationally. I spent a year as the microsurgical fellow at the Royal Adelaide Hospital, Australia and a further year of microsurgical fellowship at St.Andrews, Broomfield, Essex.
I was the Nagor Aesthetic fellow at the McIndoe surgical centre, East Grinstead. This is one of the few recognised training fellowships in cosmetic surgery in the UK. During my surgical training I also undertook research into the treatment of skin cancer for which I was awarded an MSc (distinction, UCL). I was appointed to my current NHS position in 2014. I am the clinical lead for complex reconstruction following major trauma and am an integral member of the skin cancer multidisciplianry team. I treat all aspects of skin cancer and offer sentinel lymph node biopsy and lymphadenectomy surgery.
I specialise in reconstructive surgery and have a sub-specialty interest in microsurgical reconstruction. I also have a significant skin cancer workload which includes the treatment of malignant melanoma for which I am able to offer sentinel lymph node biopsy.
I am the specialty lead for Audit & Governance at Addenbrooke's Hospital, Cambridge. I am the divisional lead for Audit at Addenbrooke's Hospital, Cambridge.
