Professional profile

I was appointed a full-time consultant general surgeon in 2001 at Countess of Chester Hospital, specialising in breast cancer surgery and breast reconstruction. Since 2010, I have worked wholly in breast and thyroid surgery. I assess and manage the full range of breast symptoms needing medical assessment and I perform surgery for benign and malignant conditions.

The major part of my surgical work is oncoplastic breast reconstruction. I have always maintained strong emphasis on clinical research in breast disease and I have been involved in several clinical trials. I am continually involved in teaching medical students and surgeons in training as well as allied professionals. I have taught on regional and national educational programmes and have lectured in the UK and abroad about breast disease and breast screening.

Clinical Interests
