Professional profile

I was appointed as a Consultant Colorectal Surgeon and Honorary Senior Lecturer at the University Hospitals Leicester in 2009. I qualified in medicine in 1992 from Oxford University having obtained a first class honours degree in physiological sciences. I undertook basic training in Nottingham, Leicester and became a specialist surgical registrar in the Oxford region. I was appointed as a Clinical Lecturer in the Nuffield Department of Surgery, Oxford University where I also held the post of Surgeon-Scientist.

I have a strong academic background having been awarded a PhD (DPhil) from Oxford University in 2004. In 2008 I became an International Guest Scholar of the American College of Surgeons. This is a highly competitive award given to only ten surgeons world wide each year. I have gained laparoscopic colorectal experience in Europe (Netherlands), USA and Japan.
