Professional profile

I am a consultant Paediatric Surgeon with a specialist training in recognised children's surgical centres in Mumbai, Cardiff, Birmingham and London. After completion of FRCS in Paediatric surgery and sub-specialist Paediatric Urology training at Great Ormond Street and Evelina Children's Hospital (St Thomas'), I returned to Cardiff.

I am on the Specialist register of the GMC for paediatric Surgery. I look after patients from 0-18 years of age with a wide range of general and urological problems. Operations routinely performed by me are: General Paediatric Surgery - hernia, hydrocele, circumcision-prepucioplasty, laparoscopic or open Orchiopexy, varicocele surgery, surgery for paediatric ovarian pathology and variety of lumps and bumps.

As a specialist paediatric Urologist, I manage assessments and treatments of a range of urology problems. This includes: Prenatal counselling and follow up after birth for renal conditions, urinary infection, incontinence, kidney disorders eg hydronephrosis, duplex kidney, hypospadias etc.

I greatly value your (child and parents) feedback and I work closely with my nursing and medical colleagues to explore surgical and nonsurgical strategies that best suit the child's need.

Personal Profile

Apart from clinical side, I have a keen interest in medical education, clinical risk management and application of modern technologies to medical field. I have a collaborative approach to work and I am keen to develop adolescent care services for children with previous surgery who need to be monitored in adulthood.

Presently I have taken up oil painting as a serious hobby and I also enjoy classical music and reading.
