Professional profile

I am a specialist Laparoscopic (keyhole), Upper Gastrointestinal and Bariatric (weight loss) Surgeon. I am fellowship trained having completed two fellowships in advanced laparoscopic (keyhole) and bariatric (weight loss) surgery.

I perform over 300 keyhole procedures every year with expertise in bariatric (weight loss) procedures, surgery for acid reflux/hiatus hernia, gallstones, hernias, stomach/oesophageal cancer, and keyhole small bowel resections. To date I have performed more than 1,500 keyhole procedures. I also undertake other procedures such as removal of lumps, division of adhesions and endoscopy.

I lead the East Midlands Bariatric and Metabolic Institute (EMBMI), a regional centre that provides bariatric services to patients from the East Midlands, and run an in-house training fellowship for other surgeons.

I am an Honorary Associate Professor of Surgery at The University of Nottingham where I completed my PhD. I have authored more than 50 publications including international guidelines on enhanced recovery after bariatric surgery. My research has been awarded numerous national and international prizes including the prestigious 2010 Moynihan Medal of the Association of Surgeons of Great Britain & Ireland.

I accept referrals for insured and self-pay and work with most insurance companies (BUPA, AXA, Cigna, WPA, Benenden).
