I I am a General Surgeon with a specialist interest in oesophageal (gullet), gastric (stomach), gallbladder and hernia surgery. In addition, I treat patients with obesity.
I was Lecturer in Surgery at Bristol Royal Infirmary before moving to Cardiff University Hospital as Senior Lecturer. I relocated to Cambridge in 2001 to establish the Oesophago-gastric Unit there. I perform a wide range of laparoscopic (keyhole) procedures for gallstones, acid reflux (GORD), hiatus hernias, obesity and hernias.I trained in the South West and was then a consultant in Cardiff before relocating to Cambridge. I spent two years in research investigating a condition called Barrett's Oesophagus which is caused by gastro-oesophageal reflux (this causes heartburn).This condition is on the increase and has been linked to a rising incidence of gullet cancer. I perform a wide range of laparoscopic operations including those for heartburn, gallstones, hernias and obesity.
