I have broad training in General Urology, from the West Midlands Higher Surgical Training Scheme. I have subspecialty interests in stone disease and laparoscopic kidney surgery.

I also see and treat all manners of Urological conditions. I have been a Consultant Urological Surgeon since February 2012, providing the above services, initially at Aintree University Hospital Liverpool, where I set up the laparoscopy (keyhole surgery) service and laser stone treatment service. I now practice at Heart of England NHS Trust.

I treat all Urological diseases, including voiding problems, penile and scrotal surgery and investigation of urinary problems. I specialise in stone treatment and laparoscopic surgery.

Since being appointed as a Consultant, I have performed 90 nephrectomy (kidney removal) operations. All my data is submitted and available to view on the British Association of Urological Surgeons website (BAUS).

I have performed more than 100 ureteroscopic laser stone surgeries.

I am the Audit Lead and antimicrobial lead for Urology at Heart of England NHS Trust.

Consultant Urological Surgeon, Heart of England NHS Trust.

In my spare time, I am a keen sportsman – I play football, squash and golf (in fair weather only). I have a wife and two sons that occupy most of my leisure time doing family activities.

I was part of the Hockley Heath Residents Association Village plan committee, which empowered residents to take control of their town/village’s future planning needs.
