Professional profile

I am a consultant general and colorectal surgeon with a particular interest in laparoscopic surgery. I qualified from Cambridge and trained in Nottingham and Leicester, where we developed significant experience in general surgery, proctology, inflammatory bowel disease and colorectal cancer.

I was awarded a Fellowship in Canada by the Association of Coloproctology, where I performed significant numbers of laparoscopic procedures - particularly laparoscopic colorectal procedures - which I am now performing in the UK.

General Medical Council Number: C4259657
