Professional profile

I completed my medical and specialist radiotherapy training in Istanbul, Turkey. I later sub-specialised in the treatment of head and neck cancer and was appointed Professor of Radiation Oncology and Clinical Lead for the Head and Neck Cancer Unit at Dokuz Eylul University Medical School in Izmir, Turkey.

I moved to the UK in 2004, joining Leeds Teaching Hospitals Trust as Consultant Clinical Oncologist. As a part of my role, I support the Huddersfield and Calderdale breast multi-disciplinary team, delivering radiotherapy for breast cancer. I also specialises in head and neck cancer and is lead clinician for the radiotherapy service.

I have treated over 2,000 breast cancer patients over the last 12 year period in Yorkshire in both my NHS and private practice.

I have an honorary contract with Leeds University and published widely and retain my academic interest in the use of chemo-radiation to treat head and neck cancers. I actively involved in a number of national and international research networks and groups, including the UK National Cancer Research Network and the European Organisation for Research and Treatment of Cancer.
