Professional profile

I am a Consultant Plastic Surgeon at Queen Alexandra (QA) Hospital in Portsmouth. My practice at QA involves mainly breast reconstruction following mastectomy. I find that my experience in cosmetic surgery has helped me achieve excellent results with these difficult cases. Likewise, my experience with reconstruction has given me a keen eye for aesthetic practice, which reflects my philosophy of striving to achieve the most natural result possible.

My consultations allow patients to preview what they might look like following breast surgery with the aids of virtual reality goggles and a 3D simulator, thus helping you to make an informed decision about plastic surgery.

I graduated with a Bachelor of Science degree from the prestigious Imperial College, London. I went on to graduate in medicine from St. Mary's Hospital (part of University of London) in 1999, and was an honours candidate in Surgery. Following which, I underwent general surgical training in London before winning a place on the coveted Pan Thames Plastic Surgery Training Scheme.

I undertook further specialist training in aesthetic surgery at the McIndoe Surgical Centre in East Grinstead (the largest dedicated aesthetic hospital in Europe) and a microsurgical fellowship at the Royal Marsden Hospital in London (the first purpose-built cancer hospital in the world).

I have undertaken travelling fellowships to M D Anderson Cancer Centre in Texas, the Bernie O'Brien Microsurgical Institute in Melbourne and the Melanoma Institute of Australia. I won a scholarship from the Healthcare America Foundation which allowed me to achieve this.
