I am an experienced Upper Gastrointestinal (GI) and Bariatric (weight loss) surgeon. I qualified from the University of Glasgow with MBChB in 1990, and did my Basic Surgical training at the Chelsea and Westminster Hospital. After this training period, I joined Royal Free Hospital in London to do Master of Surgery at the University of London. My Specialist Registrar training was in the London Deanery. After my CCST, I spent one year as a Senior Clinical Fellow in Royal North Shore Hospital, Sydney, Australia, learning advanced Upper GI & Bariatric surgery.
I joined Homerton University Hospital in East London as Consultant Bariatric and Upper GI Surgeon, with the intention of contributing as much as I could to patient care. Homerton's Bariatric Surgical Unit serves the largest number of patients in UK. Among my current clinical interests are single-port and minimal-access surgery.
The main operations I currently perform are: •Bariatric (weight loss surgery) – Single-port and laparposcopic gastric banding, laparoscopic sleeve gastrectomy •Upper Gastrointestinal (GI) Surgery – including single-port laparoscopic cholecystectomy, fundoplication, and hiatus hernia repair •General Surgery – including single-port laparoscopic hernia repair operations and day case surgery
