"Excellent staff and well supported."


Specialises in

Having trained in general surgery in the North East Thames deanery and at West Middlesex University Hospital, I completed my Fellowship exams in 2014 with sub-specialty interest in Breast Surgery. I also completed an Oncoplastic Fellowship at the Nightingale Centre in Manchester prior to being appointed as a Consultant Oncoplastic Surgeon and Reconstructive Breast Surgeon at University Hospitals of Morecambe Bay in 2018.

I specialise in the assessment and management of benign and malignant breast conditions in both women and men. I am skilled in oncoplastic and reconstructive surgical techniques in breast cancer surgery and also perform cosmetic surgeries, predominantly breast reductions and mastopexies (breast lift).

I have research experience having performed breast cancer related research at University College London. I have presented my research work in National and International conferences, won awards and have peer reviewed publications.

I am the breast surgery audit lead at University Hospitals of Morecambe Bay NHS Trust.

I am well liked by my patients and colleagues and have always been appreciated for my calm demeanour, work ethic, decision making and surgical skills.
