Professional profile

I am a Consultant General and Colorectal Surgeon. My NHS practice is based at Salford Royal NHS Foundation Trust and private practice at the Spire Manchester Hospital. My undergraduate training was in Cambridge and Oxford followed by basic surgical training in London. I returned home to Manchester where I carried out research into abdominal adhesions before completing my higher surgical training in Manchester and the North West. Before starting consultant practice I took up a prestigious advanced fellowship at St James Hospital, Leeds in Laparoscopic Colorectal Surgery.

I have a broad colorectal and general surgical practice incorporating laparoscopic colorectal surgery for benign and malignant disease, endoscopy as well as surgery for intestinal fistulas, complex Crohn's disease and abdominal wall hernias. I am a JAG approved colonoscopist and have developed an interest in Quality Improvement and safety in healthcare.

I am the surgical specialty tutor for Salford Royal and an enthusiastic trainer.

I have written recent textbook chapters on complex abdominal wall repairs, intestinal failure and surgery for the large intestine.
