Professional profile

Availability - Murrayfield: Thursday 6pm-7pm.

I am senior surgeon at the Royal Hospital for Sick Children in Edinburgh and a general paediatric surgeon. As such, my surgical practice is confined to the paediatric age group rather than to an organ specialty. I have more than 20 years' experience in paediatric surgery dealing with patients from the neonatal period to the late teens. I have a major interest in minimally invasive surgery, believing in the importance of minimal scarring but safe surgery. A large proportion of my workload is urological and these techniques of minimal access surgery are used in that area too.

Clinical Interests

Paediatric urology
Paediatric gastroenterology
Paediatric laparascopic surgery

Minimally invasive surgery; paediatric surgical oncology; paediatric urology. Paediatric gastroenterology.

Personal Profile

I have three children of my own and am well aware of parental anxieties when their children require surgery. My spare time is devoted to my family and I am also a church elder. My wife and I enjoy travel and fine food and wine.
