"I enjoy working at Spire because the facilities are great. The atmosphere is very friendly and supportive and most importantly the staff are committed to providing the highest level of care to each patient."
I am a consultant laparoscopic general/upper gastrointestinal surgeon. I have extensive training in the surgery of the liver and gallbladder disease and was trained in a specialised tertiary hospital in Liverpool. I then had further training in the upper gastrointestinal surgery in West Yorkshire and in a teaching hospital in Hull. Prior to moving to the UK, I was trained in Sri Lanka.
My training has given me a high degree of experience in treating gallbladder disease (gall stones) with the most modern techniques with an emphasis on rapid access to treatment and recovery. I also underwent further advanced training in keyhole surgery in a specialised hospital in West Yorkshire which enables me to become an expert in the treatment of all groin and abdominal wall hernias, including incisional hernias.
I strive to achieve the highest level of care, providing the very best standard of surgical treatment and patient satisfaction.
I perform keyhole surgery to remove the gallbladder. I am a very experienced hernia surgeon performing both keyhole and open surgery. I perform a wide range of hernia surgery which includes groin hernia, umbilical hernia, epigastric hernia, incisional hernia and hiatus hernia. I also specialise in repairing very large incisional hernia using the modern technique of abdominal wall reconstruction. I perform gastroscopies to investigate upper abdominal pain, acid reflux and indigestion. I excise all types of lumps and bumps arising in and under the skin.
