I am a consultant plastic surgeon with a specialist interest in hand surgery. I have a full-time NHS practice at Leeds General Infirmary since 2010 where I see and treat patients with both emergency and elective plastic and hand surgery conditions. My private practice at Spire Leeds mirrors my NHS experience of general plastic surgery, body contouring following weight loss, and hand surgery.
The cosmetic operations I perform include breast augmentation, mastopexy (breast lift), breast reduction, abdominoplasty (tummy tuck), labiaplasty, brachioplasty (arm lift), blepharoplasty (eye bags), liposuction and correction of inverted nipples. The hand surgery conditions I treat include carpal tunnel syndrome, cubital tunnel syndrome, trigger finger, Dupuytren’s disease, ganglion and arthritis of the hand. Hand surgery is usually carried out under local / regional anaesthetic. Other procedures I perform include mole, cyst, skin tag, skin cancer excision and scar revision.
I perform over 1000 cases a year between my NHS and private practice.
I am the audit and clinical governance lead for plastic surgery, Leeds General Infirmary.
I am a member of the surgical team for the hand transplant programme at Leeds General Infirmary.
