I graduated from Rawalpindi Medical College, Pakistan in 2002. I completed my basic surgical training in Merseyside, UK. My interest in surgical research brought me to St Thomas’ Hospital in London where I completed a higher degree at Kings College London.

My higher surgical training was in London (North East Thames rotation) and I obtained valuable training while working with world-renowned surgeons at tertiary centres in London. After finishing my training, I did a post CCT fellowship in robotic surgery at Portsmouth.

I have been working as a consultant colorectal and general surgeon at Basildon and Thurrock University Hospital NHS Trust since April 2018.
