Professional profile

I am a Consultant Upper GI, Bariatric (Obesity), and Laparoscopic (Keyhole) Surgeon at University Hospitals of Derby and Burton NHS Trust. I also hold the position of Honorary (Consultant) Assistant Professor of Surgery at University of Nottingham – School of Medicine.

I qualified from the College of Medicine University of Mosul with honors. Following completing my basic surgical training in South Wales, I undertook my higher surgical training in the Health Education East Midlands – North and was awarded my Fellowship (FRCS) and Certificate of Completion of Training (CCT) from the Royal College of Surgeons of England.

I completed the Royal College of Surgeons of England Fellowship Programme in advanced laparoscopic and bariatric surgery at St Richards International Bariatric and Metabolic Surgery Centre of Excellence in Chichester, United Kingdom. In addition to emergency surgery, I have been fully trained into surgical management of patients with morbid obesity, oesophagogastric cancer, refractory GORD (acid reflex), open and laparoscopic repair of abdominal wall hernias, and gallstone disease.

I was awarded a PhD degree from the University of Nottingham for my research in the role of oestrogen receptors in oesophageal cancer development. My research projects were also presented at several national and international prize sessions and awarded first prize medal from the Midlands Gastroenterology Society. I have several published book chapters and peer reviewed papers. My research interests includes the pathogenesis of oesophageal cancer, improving outcomes in bariatric and metabolic surgery, using quality markers to improve outcomes in emergency surgery, and participation in national collaborative audit/research studies.
