Professional profile

I am a consultant surgeon at the Spire Hartswood Hospital in Brentwood. I manage a range of general surgical conditions including bowel cancer, diverticular disease, inflammatory bowel disease, gallstones, inguinal and abdominal wall hernias, and various anal conditions such as haemorrhoids. I also perform general surgical operations on children (including circumcisions, hernia operations, surgery for undescended testicles, and removal of lumps and bumps and ingrowing toenails). I am also a fully trained endoscopist with JAG accreditation in colonoscopy. I use laparoscopic (keyhole) techniques whenever appropriate, and perform most of my operations as day-cases. For major surgery I use Enhanced Recovery techniques, helping patients to recover sooner. I firmly believe in actively involving patients and their family and loved ones in treatment decisions, and place patients at the centre of care.

I perform approximately 50 major bowel operations per year (for benign and cancerous conditions) and submit my data to the National Bowel Cancer Audit.

I am the lead for general paediatric surgery at Basildon Hospital.

I qualified as a medical doctor in Malta and have worked in the NHS since 2000. I spent time doing clinical research in Glasgow, completed Higher Specialist Training in Manchester and did a Fellowship in laparoscopic colorectal surgery and advanced/complex open surgery in Basingstoke. Following this, I moved to Essex to take up the consultant post at Basildon Hospital.
