Specialises in

I graduated from the prestigious DOW Medical College in Pakistan with a distinction and then moved to Ireland for higher training. After gaining valuable experience in various hospitals, I polished off my skills at the famous University Hospital, Galway. I then moved to the UK to get trained in the management of complex GI diseases and specialised in endoscopic procedures.

I worked at the world-renowned St Mark's and St George's Hospitals in London before moving to Ziauddin University Hospital in Pakistan as Assistant Professor and Consultant Gastroenterologist. I moved back to the UK after two years and have been providing an excellent Gastrointestinal service at Medway Hospital since 2007. I am currently the lead for department of Gastroenterology at Medway Hospital.

During my training I attained excellent experience in management of liver and pancreatic diseases, inflammatory and functional bowel diseases. I have experience in the management of most GI diseases and have extensive experience in performing diagnostic and therapeutic endoscopies. I am an accredited bowel scope screener.

I have performed more than 10,000 diagnostic and therapeutic upper and lower GI endoscopies including complex hepatobiliary procedures (ERCPs).
