Professional profile

I am an upper gastro-intestinal surgeon with a major interest in oesophageal (gullet) and gastric (stomach) conditions and laparoscopic (key hole) surgery.

I trained in the South West and was then a consultant in Cardiff before relocating to Cambridge. I spent two years in research investigating a condition called Barrett's Oesophagus which is caused by gastro-oesophageal reflux (this causes heartburn).

This condition is on the increase and has been linked to a rising incidence of gullet cancer. I perform a wide range of laparoscopic operations including those for heartburn, gallstones, hernias and obesity.
