Professional profile

A graduate and fellow of the Royal College of Surgeons in Ireland. I carried out surgical research in the USA before training in London and Cambridge. I won a one year clinical fellowship in colorectal surgery at the prestigious Cleveland Clinic, Ohio before returning to the UK to take up my consultancy. I was appointed as a consultant colorectal and general surgeon on the Wirral in 1998. I have a major interest in inflammatory bowel disease and surgical nutrition as well as hernia surgery and abdominal wall reconstruction. I perform a full range of colorectal procedures including colonoscopy and anorectal surgery for fissures, fistula and haemorrhoids as well as surgery for colorectal cancer and diverticula disease.

I have been a consultant surgeon for 21 years. I am a recent past president of the Liverpool and North West Surgical Society. I am currently President of the Royal Society of Medicine section of coloproctology and am on the Executive of the Association of Coloproctology of Great Britain and Ireland for whom I chair the multidisciplinary clinical committee. I teach hernia surgery nationally and internationally and colonoscopy techniques in the Mersey school of endoscopy. I am an invited lecturer on many different topics in colorectal, general and hernia surgery. My recent publications are varied and include the national small bowel obstruction audit, the ACPGBI position statement on surgical management of inflammatory bowel disease, a further paper on the initial UK experience of a particular hernia repair technique which has become very popular for complex hernias and an invited review article for the British Journal of General Practice on rectal bleeding.
