I have developed a day case laparoscopic cholecystectomy, incisional and inguinal hernia service at Medway Hospital. I am a senior lecturer at the University of Christchurch Canterbury and is the pathway lead for the Masters degree in minimally invasive surgery.
I have an interest in colorectal surgery which includes the treatment of common conditions such as haemorrhoids, fistulae in ano, anal fissures, pilonidal sinuses, Crohn's disease and ulcerative colitis. I am fully trained endoscopist which includes diagnostic and therapeutic colonoscopy.
