Professional profile

I qualified from Kings College Hospital Medical School in 1993 and trained in London. I undertook a period of research at the Royal London Hospital investigating the genetics of colorectal cancer and was appointed as a Consultant Surgeon at Barts and the London NHS Trust in 2007.

I work in the Centre for Academic Surgery and I'm developing laparoscopic colorectal surgery within the trust and I'm also leading the enhanced recovery pathway for patients undergoing major surgery. In addition, I am an Honorary Senior Lecturer and the surgical lead for development and delivery of the undergraduate surgical curriculum at Barts and the London Medical School. I am also an Educational Supervisor at the Royal College of Surgeons and is actively involved in appointing, educating and training future surgeons.
