Professional profile

I am a military surgeon; first appointed as Honorary Consultant to the Heart of England NHS Foundation Trust in 2005. I qualified in 1990 at St Thomas’ Hospital, London, and have subsequently enjoyed a broad training in surgery, gaining experience in general surgery in the South West and sub-speciality training at Oxford and St. Marks Hospital, London. I also undertook fellowships in trauma surgery and general paediatric surgery in South Africa. I am an enthusiastic trainer of junior surgeons and have a notable track record of contribution to the surgical academic literature.

I have special interests across the full range of general, colorectal and general paediatric surgery. The bulk of my elective practice involves treating patients with colorectal cancer, inflammatory bowel disease [such as Crohn’s disease and ulcerative colitis]. I have an active interest in laparoscopic [minimally invasive] colorectal surgery. As well as comprehensive treatments for pelvic floor dysfunction, perianal sepsis and fistula I offer THD [haemorrhoidal artery ligation] as a treatment for haemorrhoids [piles]. I provide the full range of surgical treatments for inguinal, umbilical, epigastric, incisional and parastomal hernia.

I have medicolegal experience in the field of professional negligence, surgical mishaps/accidents and personal injury. Experienced with Legal Aid, I provide a rapid and comprehensive medicolegal report writing service and have courtroom experience as an expert.
