Professional profile

I am a Worcestershire born and bred Consultant Plastic Surgeon who enjoys a balance of town and country living. My NHS practice is based in Bristol and Gloucestershire and I run a successful private practice in the three counties.

I attended Bristol Medical School completing my degree with honors and an additional degree in Physiology with First class honors aided by a scholarship from the Smith and Nephew foundation. I completed six years of traditional surgical training passing the MRCS before six years of further intensive plastic surgery training culminating in the award of FRCS(Plast) and recognition by the GMC as a specialist in 2009. For the following two years I undertook prestigious and competitive fellowships studying the latest techniques in internationally recognised centres of London (Marsden), Nottingham and within Italy, supported by a scholarship from the Royal College of Surgeons and a bursary from BAPRAS. I have been a substantive consultant since 2011 and have steadily built a private practice based on word-of-mouth recommendation. I am a core member of the skin and sarcoma MDT in Bristol.

I am a senior lecturer at Bristol University Medical School, and has over 30 peer-review publications as well as contributions to medical texts and guidance for surgeons. I have been an invited speaker to a number of national and international meetings and courses. I am involved in the national selection of trainees in plastic surgery and local annual review of trainee competency (ARCP) I edit and approve articles for publication.

I can consult on and perform the full spectrum of cosmetic and breast procedures as well as surgery for skin cancer, hand surgery and limb reconstruction. I believe in a reliable and personal service, a non-judgmental approach that listens to patients concerns and tailors surgery to their specific needs. I am conscientious and approachable, supporting patients throughout their journey through surgery and the post-operative recovery process.
