Professional profile

I have a broad-based general surgical practice both at Spire London East Hospital, Essex and Whipps Cross University Hospital, East London - my NHS base. This includes abdominal procedures such as laparoscopic cholecystectomy and hernias, as well as a substantial amount of vascular surgery (varicose veins, arterial bypasses and aneurysms). I regularly undertake thoracoscopic sympathectomies for excessive sweating of the hands and arm pits (hyperhidrosis).

I have an interest in paediatric surgery, having trained in this field at the Birmingham Children's Hospital. I am a firm believer in outlining all of the treatment options to the patient, and involving patients in decision making about their care.
