I started my consultant career in 2014 at Guildford, to help expand and develop the regional oesophago-gastric cancer unit for Surrey. I was a consultant surgeon at the largest internationally renowned Northern Oesophago-Gastric Cancer Unit (Newcastle upon Tyne) prior to my appointment at the Royal Surrey County Hospital.

I have been extensively trained in all aspects of weight loss surgery including gastric bypass, sleeve gastrectomy and gastric band surgery.

My aim is to deliver high quality care and being patient centered is paramount. I am a reliable, approachable, dedicated, conscientious, trust-worthy and a multi-faceted surgeon whose aim is to deliver high quality care.

I trained in Newcastle upon Tyne and graduated from medical school in 2001 (MBBS). I undertook two years of research in oesophageal and stomach cancer. I passed with commendation for the Degree of Doctorate of Medicine and was nominated for the Medical Sciences Doctoral Thesis Prize. In 2011, I was awarded the Association of Surgeon’s Gold Medal and Prize as the top candidate out of 130 in the UK at the Intercollegiate examination in surgery (FRCS). I spent 27 months as the senior trainee at the Northern Oesophago-Gastric Cancer Unit in Newcastle upon Tyne and was trained by Professor SM Griffin OBE at the largest oesophago-gastric cancer unit in the UK.

I have worked at the Royal Surrey County Hospital for five years, as a Consultant Oesophago-Gastric and Laparoscopic Surgeon, which offered a specialist oesophago-gastric cancer service and received complex tertiary referrals from other hospitals around the UK. I have also performed weight loss surgery at St George’s Hospital. In June 2018, I relocated to the Salford Royal Hospital, in Greater Manchester, to continue my passion of oesophago-gastric cancer and weight loss surgery. An excellent career opportunity arose due to the recent merging of services in Manchester, making Salford the largest oesophago-gastric centre in the UK, serving a population of 3.2 million. I wish to develop enhanced recovery, prehabilitation and weight loss surgery further.

I also have excellent experience at bariatric surgery and have been trained by Mr P Small at the Sunderland Royal Hospital. I spent time with Professor JD Luketich at the University Of Pittsburgh Medical Center (UPMC) learning the technique of Minimally Invasive Oesophagectomy (MIO) which is a keen interest of mine for the future.

I have been awarded seven prizes, and have presented research both nationally and internationally.

I am currently offering free bariatric consultations, please contact the hospital for more information.
