Professional profile

I trained at The University of Leeds Medical School and qualified in 1998. I later returned to the North West of England to complete my basic and higher surgical training, after which I did a Fellowship in Laparoscopic Colorectal surgery. Upon my appointment as Consultant at Trafford General Hospital in Manchester (Park Hospital to those who remember) I introduced Laparoscopic Colorectal Surgery within the Trust and developed a Pelvic Floor service.

I now work as a Consultant Laparoscopic, General and Colorectal Consultant at Central Manchester Foundation Trust (Manchester Royal Infirmary), one of England’s leading academic healthcare organisations.

I maintain a specialist interest in advanced minimally invasive (keyhole) surgery, offering laparoscopic bowel surgery to suitable patients. I perform twice monthly day case surgery at Trafford General Hospital, of which surgery for anal fistulas forms the majority of my work.

Research interests: Reporting of results following emergency and elective surgery and outcomes in trials.
