Professional profile

I have been a Consultant at Mid Yorkshire Hospitals NHS Trust since 2006. I trained in Yorkshire and specialise in general, laparoscopic and colorectal surgery. I perform general surgery including hernias, abdominal and keyhole surgery including gallbladder removal and colorectal procedures including treatment of haemorrhoids, fissures and perianal abscesses and fistulas.

I have performed thousands of operations, including 100s of bowel resections, mostly for cancer, and 1,000s of upper and lower GI endoscopies. I have a published mortality for bowel cancer resections that is lower than the National average and is the lowest in our trust.
