I am a British, US and German-trained consultant cardiac surgeon with 25 years experience in cardiac surgery. I have a national and international referral base as an expert in minimally invasive (keyhole) and robotic heart surgery.

I specialise in keyhole and robotic heart surgery, especially as it pertains to mitral valve repair / replacement, tricuspid valve repair, aortic valve repair / replacement, coronary artery bypass grafting and the surgical treatment of atrial fibrillation (Cox maze procedure).

I have performed over 2,000 heart surgeries, more than 750 of which have been keyhole or robotic mitral valve or coronary artery bypass grafting procedures. I am currently the only surgeon in the UK performing robotic heart surgery. I am the highest volume mitral valve surgeon in the UK performing conventional and minimally invasive valve surgery.

I am Chairman of the British and Irish Society for Minimally Invasive Cardiac Surgery, as well as a Senior Lecturer at the University of Liverpool.

I have been a member of Top Doctors for many years.
