Professional profile

I am a general surgeon with a specialist interest in open and laparoscopic surgery. Following my medicine qualification and masters in general surgery in India, I completed basic surgical training and membership examinations in UK. After a period of research at Royal Free Hospital and University College, London, I gained specialist surgical training (colorectal and general surgery) in the South-West Thames region. I completed my training with a senior fellowship in recurrent rectal cancer and pelvic floor surgery at St Thomas Hospital, London.

My practice mainly involves elective bowel surgery along with on call commitments for all general surgical emergencies. As a fully trained surgeon, I offer expertise in open and laparoscopic (keyhole) surgery for bowel cancer and inflammatory bowel diseases (Crohn’s disease and Ulcerative Colitis). I also offer Single Port Laparoscopic (Single incision keyhole) surgery mainly for bowel cancer.

Along with laparoscopic surgery for hernias (groin, abdominal, incisional), I also deal with all aspects of ano-proctology (piles, fissures, fistulas,etc) including HALO and THD. I also specialise in trans-anal minimally invasive surgery (TAMIS) for large rectal polyps and early rectal cancer. I am an accredited endoscopist (OGD, Colonoscopy and polyp removal). Specialist training in pelvic floor dysfunction allows me to offer patients effective management of evacuatory disorders and rectal prolapse.
