Professional profile

I was appointed as Consultant Colorectal Surgeon at the Queen Elizabeth Hospital Birmingham and Senior Lecturer at Birmingham University in 2007. Prior to this I had trained in Oxford, Melbourne, Manchester and Newcastle. My Doctorate in Medicine was awarded for research into new bowel cancer treatments at the Christie Hospital Manchester in 2000. I then became Lecturer in Surgery at Oxford University and a Specialist Registrar at the John Radcliffe Hospital. I was awarded a fellowship position as part of the Royal Australasian College of Surgeons Advanced Colorectal Training Program at St Vincent’s Hospital Melbourne in 2006 where I developed specialist skills in the use of laparoscopic (keyhole) surgery for treatment of bowel cancer and inflammatory bowel disease.

Since becoming a consultant I have helped develop minimal access surgery at the Queen Elizabeth Hospital. I introduced Transanal Endoscopic Microsurgery (TES) for early rectal tumours so that selected patients may avoid radical surgery. I lead a national study to evaluate TEMS treatment for rectal cancer. I have published work in leading scientific journals and won a several awards including the most outstanding contribution to the Tripartite (combined North American, UK and Australasian) colorectal congress in Boston 2008.

I supervise a programme of laboratory research and sit on research committees for the National Cancer Research Institute and Association of Coloproctology.

Personal Profile

I have a young family and enjoy sharing the outdoors with them. I grew up playing rugby but switched to cycling in my mid 20's rather than risk accumulating further injury. I now cycle on the road with Solihull CC and enjoy the challenge of competing in mountain bike events such as Mountain Mayhem and the Kielder 100.
