I am currently a Consultant Ear, Nose and Throat, Head and Neck and Thyroid Surgeon at Addenbrookes Hospital, Cambridge. The majority of my work centres around benign and malignant Head and Neck surgery, Thyroid surgery, voice complaints and LASER surgery to the voice box, airways and upper digestive tract.

I undertake major Head and Neck cancer operations with or without reconstruction. I run a Trans-Nasal Oesophagoscopy (TNO) service and my Facial/Plastic service includes rhinoplasty, scar revision and skin lesions. I also offer Botox and dermal filler rejuvenation treatments. 

I graduated from the University of Dundee Medical School in Scotland and went on to complete Higher Specialist Surgical Training in Otolaryngology, Head and Neck Surgery in major teaching hospitals in England. I also completed an MSc in Surgical Science at Imperial College, London.

During my training, I undertook a clinical research Fellowship at the Institute of Cancer Research and the Royal Marsden Hospital in London, studying functional outcomes following treatment in Head and Neck cancer.

In 2013, I completed the European Academy Fellowship in Facial - Plastic Surgery at the Academic Medical Centre in Amsterdam. In addition to this International Fellowship, I undertook the National Training Interface Group Fellowship in Aesthetic and Reconstructive surgery, working with surgeons in the fields of Plastic surgery, Rhinoplasty surgery, and Craniofacial surgery in London.

Furthermore, I was appointed as the Royal College of Surgeons of England Post-CCT Fellow in Advanced Head and Neck Surgical Oncology at Imperial Hospitals NHS Trust and was based at Charing Cross Hospital. I have published in peer reviewed journals in the fields of Ear, Nose and Throat, Head and Neck Oncology and continue to pursue research interests in the latter.

I am actively involved in Higher Specialist Surgical Training of doctors and participate in regional and national teaching courses. I am a member of the British Association of Head & Neck Oncologists, the European Academy of Facial - Plastic Surgeons and the British Association of Endocrine and Thyroid Surgeons.
