I trained in Wales and London and completed an MD in 2011 from Imperial College, London. I am trained in laparoscopic and open colorectal and general surgery. I work with a multi disciplinary team including colorectal nurses, physiotherapists, gastroenterologists, chronic pain specialists and urogynaecologists.
