Professional profile

I am a consultant General and Colorectal Surgeon at Surrey and Sussex Healthcare NHS Trust. During my training I did a two year fellowship at the Minimal Access Therapy Training Unit in Guildford, where I completed an MD research project which focused on the optimisation of patient care before and after bowel surgery. I also received a nationally-awarded Ethicon laparoscopic colorectal fellowship, during which I received further specialised training in advanced laparoscopic (keyhole) bowel cancer surgery.

I specialise in general and colorectal surgery with a specific interest in laparoscopic bowel surgery, hernia surgery, colonoscopy and the treatment of anal fissures, fistulae and haemorrhoids. I am a JAG accredited colonoscopist. I have a particular interest in 'Enhanced Recovery', which aims to optimise patients pre- and post-operative care in order to improve their recovery following bowel surgery.

I am the Enhanced Recovery surgical lead and audit lead at East Surrey Hospital.

I am South Thames Rep on the Association of Laparoscopic Surgeons of Great Britain & Ireland Council.

I have over forty publications in peer-reviewed journals, many on the subject of Enhanced Recovery and outcomes following bowel cancer surgery. I have presented at many national and international conferences and been awarded a number of prizes including the David Dunn Medal from the ALSGBI and the John Farndon Award from the ASGBI. I am an ATLS and CCrISP instructor, training junior doctors in trauma care and management of the critically ill surgical patient.
