Professional profile

I graduated with an MBBS (Merit) from the University of Newcastle Upon Tyne in 2000. My basic surgical training was undertaken in Yorkshire, and I was appointed to the prestigious Leeds/Manchester plastic surgery training scheme in 2006. During my registrar years I also completed an MPhil research degree in Regenerative Medicine at the University of Manchester.

After completing registrar training, I spent a further two years undertaking advanced training in microsurgical and paediatric hand surgery in Leeds, and general and cosmetic plastic surgery in Adelaide, Australia. I now practice as a Consultant Plastic Surgeon across Manchester, treating adults and children with a wide variety of problems.

I offer all aspects of hand surgery, cosmetic surgery and general plastic surgery.
