MBBS BDS FDSRCS FRCS PGC Med Ed
I am a consultant oral and maxillofacial surgeon at Spire Leeds. My subspecialty interests are in trauma and reconstruction, oral and facial deformity, together with interests in facial pain and jaw joint problems. My main practice philosophy is to provide excellent service and care for my patients.
I work at Leeds Teaching Hospitals NHS Trust, and have a varied practice.
I am actively involved in teaching and training and have undertaken further training to become a qualified teacher (PGC Med Ed.) teaching medical and dental students, qualified doctors and trainee surgeons. In the coming year I am starting a Masters in Education and also undertaking research in this field.
I qualified in dentistry from the University of Birmingham in 1995 and then in medicine from Guy's, King's and St Thomas' Medical school in 2001, and undertook my junior surgical training in London in a wide variety of surgical disciplines. My maxillofacial training was in the Yorkshire region which I completed in 2011. I received a European scholarship and spent a period of time in Madrid, Spain where I worked with European facial surgeons, gaining experience.
