I specialise in general surgery with a specific interest in upper gastrointestinal surgery. I am experienced in treating patients with complex gallbladder stone disease, anti-reflux surgery, and abdominal wall hernias including incisional hernias through laparoscopic and open approaches. I have also acquired an interest in pilonidal disease using the ‘Sail Flap’ technique minimising disease recurrence and wound dehiscence.

To date (September 2022), I have performed over 2,300 general surgical operations, 800 have been laparoscopic cholecystectomies including emergency, 550 hernias (inguinal, femoral, incisional, Spigelian; primary or recurrent) of which 150 were laparoscopic, 100 anti-reflux procedures as well as other general surgical procedures including 473 appendectomies, diagnostic laparoscopies, near 400 bowel surgeries for bowel obstruction and perforation, excision of pilonidal disease, temporal artery biopsy and lymph node biopsy.

I graduated in medicine at the Autonomous University of Barcelona in 1994. I achieved an MSc in Surgical Sciences in 1997 prior starting my basic surgical training in the UK in 1998. I was awarded a PhD in 2019 after completing a multicentre research project into Transplant Immunology at Sheffield University, King's College Hospital and University of Barcelona. Following my research, I undertook higher surgical training with a special interest in Upper GI that included oesophago-gastric resectional surgery at the Northern General, Royal Marsden, and Royal Surrey County Hospitals, and Bariatric and Antireflux Surgery at St George’s Hospital. Before starting as a consultant, I attained a post-CCT Fellowship in Bariatric and Anti-reflux Surgery at Ashford and St Peter's Hospital.

I have worked as a Consultant in General Surgery, Upper GI and Laparoscopic since 2019 and was appointed at Russell's Hall Hospital as a substantive consultant in May 2021. I have played a key role in developing the laparoscopic bile duct exploration service as a one-stage procedure for complex biliary stone disease and helped consolidate anti-reflux services including the development of an MDT. As part of a multidisciplinary team, I am currently involved in setting up the Black Country Bariatric Collaborative Group, which upon completion, will see me fulfilling another of my specialty interests in the very near future: Bariatric Surgery.
