Professional profile

I specialise in minimally invasive colorectal surgery and have one of the largest UK experiences of laparoscopic colorectal surgery; colectomy, prolapse surgery, restorative ileoanal pouch as well as PPH, STARR and TEP hernia repair.

I trained in London, Leicester, Nottingham and Bristol. I learnt my laparoscopic skills in Brisbane Australia in 1994 (Russel Stitz, George Fielding). My DM thesis examined how best to monitor cancer response to treatment. I am widely published with lots of peer reviewed papers on outcomes following laparoscopic colorectal surgery, patient information needs, optimising a patient’s cancer journey, quality of life, straight to test.

I am also actively involved in teaching laparoscopic colorectal techniques, PPH and STARR to other surgeons in the UK.
