Professional profile

I was appointed as a consultant plastic surgeon 11 years ago, sub-specialising in hand and reconstructive surgery having completed my training in a world class centre in the USA. I have also had expert training in cosmetic surgery and I provide a tailored service to fulfil patient requirements. I belong to a number of professional societies which demand high standards of its members.

I specialise in treating all aspects of hand surgery; traumatic injuries, fractures and nerve/tendon injuries and also longstanding conditions such as arthritis.

I have a great deal of experience in operating on skin cancers both in my NHS and my private practice. These cases usually need more complex reconstruction and I am proud of my results. I offer cosmetic surgery particularly for breast and abdomen, but also perform liposuction and nose and eyelid surgery and adhere closely to the British Association of Aesthetic Surgery guidelines, with comprehensive consultants and a second free consultation and use patient satisfaction forms issued by the association.

I have performed over 300 cosmetic breast surgeries in my career, and about 70 abdominal cases along with over 50 cases of ear reduction, liposuction and nose surgeries.

I have been lead clinician for introduction of Xiapex® to St George's Hospital. This is an injectable enzyme used to dissolve Dupytren's disease which causes contractions in the fingers. I am the lead consultant for the teaching programme for the trainees at St George's Hospital and lead for research - I am now involved with the national research group which sets up trials for different treatments.

I am involved in the training of the medical students as well and am an examiner for the exit exam in plastic surgery just before trainees become consultants.
