Professional profile

I qualified at Guy's Hospital, London in 1990 and then trained in General and Colorectal Surgery in Cardiff, London and Oxford. After completing my training in Oxford, I spent a year as an Chief Resident and in Colorectal Surgery at the Mayo Clinic in Minnesota, USA. I have been a Consultant Colorectal and General Surgeon in Cardiff for the last 10 years. I currently manage patients at Spire Cardiff Hospital , University Hospital of Wales and University Hospital Llandough. I am experienced in the management of Colorectal Cancer, Inflammatory Bowel Disease and Anal Conditions including haemorrhoids.

I treat the full spectrum of bowel conditions including Bowel Cancer, Crohns Disease, Ulcerative Colitis, Diverticular Disease and Anal problems including haemorrhoids, anal fissure, anal fistula and skin tags. I have an active role in diagnostic and therapeutic colonoscopy . I also undertake elective general surgical procedures including hernia repair and removal of lumps and bumps.

Over the last 10 years I have undertaken over 1000 operations for bowel cancer and benign conditions. I have undertaken minimally invasive (laparoscopic) surgery in over 60% of bowel cancer resections. 50% of my work involves treating benign conditions including Crohns’ Disease, Ulcerative Colitis, Diverticular Disease. I also undertake a significant amount of minimally surgery for colonic and rectal polyps including Transanal Endoscopic Microsurgery.

I am the South Wales representative for the Association of Coloproctology of Great Britain and Ireland and I am the Surgical Quality Assurance Advisor for Bowel Screening Wales and Surgical Advisor to the Bowel Screening Wales Complex Polyp Network MDT.

In addition to my clinical work I am an honorary lecturer at the Cardiff University Medical School and have a role in the academic and clinical training of medical students in Cardiff.

I was able to spend time in a number of different parts of the UK and was fortunate to travel to other countries including India and the USA, during my training. Since returning to my home town of Cardiff, as a Consultant, I have enjoyed following the rugby and taking part in activities with my young family.
