Professional profile

I trained in medicine at University of Leicester, qualifying in 1993 followed by Officer Training at Royal Academy Sandhurst. I continued surgical training thereafter in Leicester, London, Frimly Park and Southampton attaining a well rounded general exposure prior to specialising in Plastic Surgery. During this time I attained FRCSEd (professional surgical qualification). My surgery training started in 1996 at Royal Hospital Haslar and continued at East Grinstead, Stoke Mandeville, Salisbury and Oxford. Throughout this period I recevied a thorough training in all aspects of Plastic Surgery inlcuding breast surgery, hand surgery, burns, craniofacial surgery and reconstruction. After passing the specialist Plastic Surgery examinations FRCS (Plast) I departed these shores for a specialist fellowship in Breast Reconstructive Surgery in Toronto, Canada and a Microvascular Reconstruction fellowship in Winnipeg, Canada. I took up my NHS post as Consultant Plastic and Reconstructive Surgeon in 2007.

My specialist interests include all aspects of breast surgery (reconstruction and cosmetic), skin cancer and microvascular reconstruction. I regularly perform breast reconstruction, augmentation (enlargement), mastopexy (uplift), reduction, gynaecomastia correction, abdominpolasty (tummy tuck) and skin cancer excision and reconstruction.

I have published several articles and am a contributor to the book 'Oxford Handbook in Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery'. As a member of the Royal Army Medical Corps, I have worked in Northern Ireland, Germany and Cyprus and have been deployed to Afghanistan treating many war casualties.
