I am a Consultant Laparoscopic and Upper Gastrointestinal and General Surgeon. I specialise in the treatment of conditions affecting the upper gastrointestinal tract which includes oesophageal and gastric cancer, obesity, benign oesophageal and gastric disorders, acid reflux, hiatus hernia, achalasia, and hernias. My NHS base is Salford Royal NHS Foundation Trust – the country’s largest specialist upper gastrointestinal surgical centre.

I have a specialist interest in advanced minimally invasive (keyhole) surgery and have developed my expertise by visiting international surgical centres of excellence in the United States, South Korea, The Netherlands as well as a number of leading organisations within the United Kingdom. I prioritise the delivery of excellent medical care for all my patients and believe that this should be achieved through a relationship based on trust, clear communication and an empathetic approach.
