Professional profile

I came to Guildford in 2014 to help expand and develop the regional oesophago-gastric cancer unit for Surrey. I was a Consultant Surgeon at the largest internationally renowned Northern Oesophago-Gastric Cancer Unit (Newcastle upon Tyne) prior to my appointment at the Royal Surrey County Hospital.

I trained in Newcastle upon Tyne and graduated from medical school in 2001 (MBBS). I undertook 2 years of research in oesophageal and stomach cancer. I passed with commendation for the Degree of Doctorate of Medicine and was nominated for the Medical Sciences Doctoral Thesis Prize. In 2011, I was awarded the Association of Surgeon’s Gold medal and Prize as the top candidate out of 130 in the UK at the Intercollegiate examination in surgery (FRCS). I spent 27 months as the senior trainee at the Northern Oesophago-Gastric Cancer Unit in Newcastle upon Tyne and was trained by Professor SM Griffin OBE at the largest oesophago-gastric cancer unit in the UK.

I have excellent experience at bariatric surgery and have been trained by Mr P Small at the Sunderland Royal Hospital. I spent time with Profesor JD Luketich at the University Of Pittsburgh Medical Center (UPMC) learning the technique of Minimally Invasive Oesophagectomy (MIO) which is a keen interest of my for the future. I have been awarded 7 other prizes, have presented research both nationally and internationally.

I work at the Royal Surrey County Hospital, as a Consultant Oesophago-Gastric and Laparoscopic Surgeon, which offers a specialist oesophago-gastric cancer service and receive complex tertiary referrals from other hospitals around the UK. I perform weight loss surgery at St George’s Hospital at present.

My aim is to deliver high quality care and being patient centred is paramount. I am a reliable, approachable, dedicated, conscientious, trust-worthy and a multi-faceted surgeon whose aim is to deliver high quality care. Patient centred care is my priority.
