Professional profile

I have been a consultant since 1993. My areas of specialisation lie in the diagnosis and treatment of breast disease, benign and malignant and endocrine disease and parathyroid problems. I graduated from the University of Wales College of Medicine in 1978. I am a fellow of the Royal Colleges of Surgeons of both England and Scotland. I was awarded a scholarship by the Wellcome Trust and Cancer Research Campaign to research risk factors in breast cancer for my masters degree in surgery.

I have gained experience and training throughout my career at renowned centres for breast and endocrine surgery in Cardiff, Bristol, Birmingham and Sheffield before I moved to Reading. I am committed to ongoing surgical education in my specialty areas and present and publish papers on breast and endocrine surgical problems at national and international meetings and in journals. In addition, I am involved in overseas teaching undergraduates and postgraduates in Albania and Romania. I also undertook charitable work in Albania for18 years.

Clinical Interests

Breast disease, including breast cancer; endocrine surgery: and parathyroid.

Personal Profile

I am married with two children and have two grandchildren. I paddled the Devizes to Westminster race on two occasions raising funds for work in Albania and plan to compete in a triathlon in the future to the same purpose. For relaxation, I enjoy good food, waterskiing and wakeboarding and holidaying in France.
