Professional profile

My main interest is coronary artery bypass surgery, which represents over 75 percent of my workload. The vast majority of this work is done 'off-pump', a technique that I helped to develop in Bristol.

I have a particular interest in mitral valve repair, having acquired up-to-date techniques in internationally renowned centres such as Broussais (Paris), St. Vincent's (Sydney), Mestre (Italy) and Papworth (UK).

Personal Profile

I thoroughly enjoy my work and there is little time outside to dedicate to other activities. I do however enjoy a gruelling couple of hours on the tennis courts (summer and winter), and I am a Department of Transport qualified costal skipper, working towards the Yachtmaster Certificate.
