Professional profile

I am a Consultant General and Colorectal Surgeon at Spire Gatwick Park Hospital.

I was born and grew up in Kent, and studied medicine at Wadham College, Oxford University, where I undertook an intercalated Master of Arts degree for which I was awarded a ‘First’. I completed my clinical studies for the MB BS degree at St. George’s Hospital Medical School, in London, graduating in 1996 with Distinctions in final examinations in four subject areas including surgery. I was awarded Honours in three of these (surgery, medicine, and obstetrics and gynaecology) by the University of London.

Postgraduate surgical training was completed in hospitals in London and Surrey, and I spent two years in full-time cancer research at the Royal Marsden Hospital, investigating the significance and detection of blood vessel invasion in colorectal (bowel) cancer. For my thesis I was awarded a doctoral masters degree (MS, Master of Surgery) by the University of London in 2009.

I was appointed as a Consultant Surgeon at Surrey & Sussex Healthcare NHS Trust and Spire Gatwick Park Hospital in 2008. I am experienced in general and colorectal surgery, including hernia repair, haemorrhoid and fistula surgery and colonoscopy and have developed particular expertise in laparoscopic colorectal surgery for both benign and malignant bowel diseases.
