"Spire Leeds provides comfortable clinic/ward environments, modern theatres and competitive cosmetic tariffs. The specialist nursing team are available to patients during their inpatient stay and post-discharge."
I am a consultant plastic surgeon with a specialist interest in hand surgery. I have a full-time NHS practice at Leeds General Infirmary since 2010, where I see and treat patients with both emergency and elective plastic and hand surgery conditions. My private practice at Spire Leeds mirrors my NHS experience of general plastic surgery, body contouring following weight loss, and hand surgery.
The cosmetic operations I perform include breast augmentation, mastopexy (breast lift), breast reduction, abdominoplasty (tummy tuck), labiaplasty, brachioplasty (arm lift), blepharoplasty (eye bags), liposuction and correction of inverted nipples. The hand surgery conditions I treat include carpal tunnel syndrome, cubital tunnel syndrome, trigger finger, Dupuytren’s disease, ganglion and arthritis of the hand. Hand surgery is usually carried out under local / regional anaesthetic. Other procedures I perform include mole, cyst, skin tag, skin cancer excision and scar revision.
I perform over 1,000 cases a year between my NHS and private practice.
I am the audit and clinical governance lead for plastic surgery, Leeds General Infirmary.
I am a member of the surgical team for the hand transplant programme at Leeds General Infirmary.
Medical / surgical education / teaching: Faculty member for practical skills in Hand Surgery Course (Royal College of Surgeons of England, London), ATLS (advanced trauma and life support) Provider, Reverification and Instructor Courses (Royal College of Surgeons of England, Harrogate).
