Professional profile

I am a Consultant Laparoscopic and Upper Gastrointestinal Surgeon. I have a specialist interest in advanced minimally invasive (laparoscopic or keyhole) surgery and have worked at some of the largest specialist centres in the United Kingdom. I have further developed my expertise through visiting international surgical centres of excellence in South Korea, the USA, The Netherlands and within the United Kingdom. I was appointed as a consultant in 2013 at Central Manchester University Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust, one of the UK's leading healthcare organisations.

I am active in the field of teaching and research and have a particular interest in the reporting of results following surgery. I am an Honorary Senior Lecturer at the University of Manchester and a National Institute for Health Research Doctoral Research Fellow.

My team and I work hard to ensure that patients receive the best care possible. I believe that this should be based on a doctor-patient relationship built on trust and clear communication.
