Professional profile

I am a Consultant Laparoscopic Bariatric Surgeon and lead clinician at the Welsh Institute of Metabolic and Obesity Surgery, Morriston Hospital, Swansea.

Following qualifying in Cardiff in 1996 I completed my basic surgical training in South Wales and submitted a higher degree on gastric cancer awarded in 2006 by the University of Wales. On completion of higher surgical training I spent 15 months in specialist fellowship training in bariatric surgery in Liverpool prior to taking up my post in Swansea.

I have a number of roles in Swansea University holding Honorary Senior Lecturer status and continue to teach bariatric surgery both nationally and internationally. I have had a number of appearances on radio and television and furthermore have actively engaged at Government level regarding Obesity strategy pathways in Wales.

I am the Welsh Representative for the Association of Surgeons of Great Britain and Ireland together with Regional Specialty Professional Advisor for the Royal College of Surgeons of England.

I am widely published in areas of bariatric surgery, particularly in the early metabolic response to surgery.

Clinical Interests

Special Clinical Interests: Sleeve gastrectomy surgery and Gastric bypass surgery.
