Professional profile

I am a consultant plastic surgeon at Birmingham Children's Hospital and University Hospital Birmingham NHS Trust. I have a general plastic surgery practice with sub-speciality interests in facelifts, eyelid reduction, rhinoplasty, ear correction, benign moles and cysts.

I qualified in 1980 from St Mary's Hospital Medical School, London and then completed six years of general and plastic surgery training before going to Nepal for nine years. Whilst in Nepal, I set up a department of plastic and reconstructive surgery for the Government of Nepal in Pokhara. I returned to the UK and completed a further three years of Higher Plastic Surgery training, passed the Intercollegiate College Exam in Plastic Surgery and gained a Master of Surgery degree for my research thesis on the facial nerve.

During my training and from subsequent experience, I have enjoyed learning and practising a variety of reconstructive and aesthetic techniques to manage skin cancer, cysts and moles, hand injuries and deformities such as dupuytrens, lower limb trauma and tendon transfers. My main NHS commitment is adult and children's facial reconstruction, especially cleft lip and palate, ear deformities and nose reconstruction.

I have experience in face lifts, upper and lower eyelid reduction, prominent ear correction and rhinoplasty treatments. I also run a tongue tie clinic for babies and young children. I can also prepare medio-legal reports.

My research interests include cleft lips and palate and facial nerve reconstruction. I hold memberships with the Royal College of Surgeons, British Association of Plastic Reconstructive and Aesthetic Surgeons and the Craniofacial Society of Great Britain.
