Treatment restrictions due to coronavirus (COVID-19)

As part of our longstanding relationship, we are proud to be dedicating our resources to the NHS at this important time. As a result many of our treatments are currently suspended and we are reviewing all planned procedures and consultations. We are making every effort to talk to impacted patients and apologise for any inconvenience this may cause.

Professional profile

I am a upper gastro-intestinal surgeon and specialise in laparoscopic (keyhole) surgery, performing advanced procedures such as laparoscopic gastrectomy and oesphagectomy.

I also use a laparoscopic approach almost exclusively for general surgical procedures such as hernia repair and gallbladder surgery. I have an extensive practise in the surgical treatment of gastro-oesphageal (acid) reflux.

My research interests are in surgical, nutrional and enhanced recovery after surgery.
