I have over 10 years of Consultant experience within the NHS and was appointed as Consultant Surgeon at Bristol Royal Infirmary in 2005. I have a special interest in surgery of the liver, gallbladder, bile duct and pancreas.
I graduated from Cambridge University (1988) and Oxford University Medical School (1991). I underwent surgical training in Liverpool and Edinburgh, where I trained in General and Hepato-Pancreatico-Biliary (HPB) Surgery, including multi-organ transplantation (kidney, liver and pancreas). This included a fellowship as Senior Registrar at Flinders Medical Centre, Adelaide, Australia. At the completion of my training, I was awarded the gold medal for the Intercollegiate Examination of the Royal College of Surgeons.
I am a core member of the Avon Somerset and Wiltshire HPB Cancer Network MDT and receive referrals from GPs and other Consultant Surgeons and Physicians from the wider South West Region. I provide a benign biliary service for the local population specialising in surgery for gallstones and advanced laparoscopic surgery.
