Professional profile

Availability - Murrayfield: Wednesday 2.30pm-5pm alternate weeks. Thursday's 6pm-8pm alternate weeks.

I graduated from Edinburgh University with medical and science degrees and a distinction in Surgery. I started Postgraduate Surgical Training in Edinburgh before moving to Canada to undertake a two year research fellowship at the University of Toronto, leading to the award of an MD degree for his thesis. Subsequently, I completed specialist training in Plastic and Reconstructive surgery both in Edinburgh and Newcastle.

I then returned to Canada to complete the renowned clinical fellowship in reconstructive microsurgery and breast surgery at the Toronto University Health Network and later followed this up with a clinical aesthetic fellowship in Los Angeles county and San Diego, California.

Currently I am appointed as a consultant Plastic Surgeon and clinical director in Edinburgh with responsibility for adult and paediatric services at St John's Hospital and the Royal Hospital for Sick Children. In my NHS practice, I have a specialist interest in cancer and trauma reconstruction (including head, neck and breast), facial reanimation and paediatric plastic surgery and burns. In the private sector, I have an interest in a broad range of aesthetic surgery including breast augmentation and reduction, uplifts, rhinoplasty, body contouring surgery, abdominoplasty and facial cosmetic surgery.

I have published many original articles in medical journals, presented at national and international conferences and has written two book chapters for surgical texts.
