Professional profile

I am a Consultant General and Colorectal Surgeon at East and North Herts NHS Trust. I qualified from Manchester University, and trained in General Surgery on the North West London training programme. I underwent specialist training in Colorectal Surgery at St Mark's and Chelsea Westminster Hospitals.

I specialise in laparoscopic (keyhole) surgery, and my main interest is the surgical treatment of bowel cancer. I also treat a wide range of non-cancerous bowel and anal conditions, such as haemorrhoids, diverticular disease, and anal fistulas. In addition, I perform endoscopic procedures (gastroscopy and colonoscopy) and surgery for gallstones and hernias.

I endeavour to take a compassionate and personal approach, ensuring patients feel comfortable and fully understand the treatment options available to them. I take time to explain things clearly and understand the anxieties a patient may experience. As such, I receive regular positive feedback and testimonials.
