"Patients I treat at Spire hospitals are always complimentary about the excellent care they have had."

Availability at Spire Hartswood: Wednesday afternoons.

I practice at Spire Hartswood Hospital, Brentwood, Essex and Spire London East Hospital, Redbridge, Essex. I have a wide experience of over 30 years in surgical conditions and practice according to the latest guidelines to ensure that my patients get the best that is available.

I specialise in general vascular and colorectal surgery. I am particularly interested in the treatment of varicose veins (including laser surgery) and treatment of anal conditions (piles, fissure, fistula etc). I also perform the THD procedure for haemorrhoids.

In over 20 years of practice as an NHS consultant, I performed an enormous amount of surgeries for general, vascular and colorectal conditions.

I have previously been Surgical Tutor for the Royal College of Surgeons, Clinical Director of surgery and Associate Medical Director. 

I have published two books on surgery and written numerous papers in peer reviewed journals.
