Treatment restrictions

As part of our long-standing partnership, we will be dedicating much of our resources to the NHS. As a result some of the treatments are being suspended and as a result we are reviewing all planned procedures and consultations.

Professional profile

I am an upper Gastrointestinal, General and Laparoscopic Surgeon. I qualified at Southampton University in 1993. I undertook basic surgical training and research in the Wessex region. My Specialist training was in the South West and Oxford regions. I have been a consultant at Addenbrooke’s Hospital Cambridge since 2007.

I work in a busy cancer centre treating oesophageal and gastric malignant disease. I have introduced minimally invasive resections (thoracoscopic and laparoscopic) to our regular practice in Cambridge. To date I have performed over 100 totally minimally invasive operations for oesophageal malignancy.

I have a keen interest in surgery for gastroesophageal reflux disease. I have performed a large number of laparoscopic operations for reflux and hiatus hernia. I have published a paper on laparoscopic reoperation for failed anti-reflux surgery. I also have an interest in the surgical treatment of motility disorders such as Achalasia.

I perform a large number of laparoscopic operations each year for all types of groin and abdominal wall hernias
