I have also got interests in Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS), Inflammatory bowel disease, clinical nutrition, liver diseases excluding chronic viral hepatitis, coeliac disease, acid reflux and peptic ulcer.

I have performed several thousand endoscopic procedures during my career in Gastroenterology, spanning over 18 years.
