"Spire Little Aston Hospital creates a corporate environment for professional patient care and staff wellbeing."
I am a Consultant Laparoscopic Colorectal and General Surgeon at The Dudley Group Hospital NHS Foundation Trust (Russell Hall Hospital West Midlands, England). I am an academic surgeon and currently the clinical governance and surgical lead for inflammatory bowel disease.
I specialise in laparoscopic (keyhole) surgery for colorectal cancer and other diseases of the gastrointestinal tract. I manage hereditary cancer syndromes and I offer colonoscopy screening for bowel cancer (JAG Accredited Endoscopist), endoscopic and minimally invasive management of colonic polyps, surgery for Crohn’s disease, ulcerative colitis and functional bowel disorder, treatment of hemorrhoids, rectal bleeding and other benign anal conditions, laparoscopic cholecystectomy for gallstone disease and laparoscopic and open repair of abdominal wall hernias.
I completed the prestigious higher surgical training in General and Colorectal Surgery from Cambridge Deanery, UK and undertook a subspecialist colorectal fellowship at St Mark’s Hospital, London, UK in advanced coloproctology prior to taking up a consultant post. I was the recipient of the Braun Aesculap Travelling Scholarship awarded from the Association of Laparoscopic Surgeons Great Britain & Ireland which afforded me the privilege of a travel fellowship at the Mayo clinic, Rochester, Minnesota USA (2016).
I completed my academic research programme at the Barts and the London Hospital, which led to the award of a Doctorate of Medicine degree by the Queen Mary University of London, UK (2012). I am a fellow of the Royal College of Surgeons, England and an associate fellow of the Higher Education Academy of England.
I have also published in several scientific journals and functioned in the capacity of editorial board of scientific journals at various times during my career.
