Personal profile

I play badminton regularly and have started playing cricket for a local club after an eight year gap (very rusty). I love long distance running and have completed two 10K races, both completed in under an hour, simultaneously raising money for Macmillan. I am one of the lead surgeons in a charity ‘Out to Africa’. I travel out to Zambia to teach / spread my passion of keyhole surgery to young and budding surgeons in Zambia. Above all, I love spending time with my family, especially my 7 year old son, who loves running and swimming. I am looking forward to a 3K run together with him.

For me, nothing beats an evening in watching a movie with my family. I also enjoy listening to a variety of music including Jazz, Bollywood and Indian Classical when they fall asleep!
