Following completing my basic surgical training in South Wales, I undertook my higher surgical training in the Health Education East Midlands – North and was awarded my Fellowship (FRCS) and Certificate of Completion of Training (CCT) from the Royal College of Surgeons of England.
I completed the Royal College of Surgeons of England Fellowship Programme in advanced laparoscopic and bariatric surgery at St Richards International Bariatric and Metabolic Surgery Centre of Excellence in Chichester, United Kingdom. In addition to emergency surgery, I have been fully trained into surgical management of patients with morbid obesity, oesophagogastric cancer, refractory GORD (acid reflex), open and laparoscopic repair of abdominal wall hernias, and gallstone disease.
I was awarded a PhD degree from the University of Nottingham for my research in the role of oestrogen receptors in oesophageal cancer development. My research projects were also presented at several national and international prize sessions and awarded first prize medal from the Midlands Gastroenterology Society. I have several published book chapters and peer reviewed papers.
