Professional profile

I was educated in Oxford and graduated from the University of Bristol Medical School, before undertaking my surgical training in Leeds and Scotland. Following three years as a Research Fellow for the Medical Research Council and the Royal College of Surgeons of England, I was the University of Leeds Medical School Tutor in Surgery. I then travelled to Tokyo and Brisbane as the Senior Clinical Fellow. I have been a Consultant Surgeon at the Manchester Royal Infirmary since 2007 and is currently the Upper GI Cancer Lead Clinician and heads the Oesophago-Gastric Department.

I developed my practice in gastric cancer and thoracoscopic and laparoscopic (keyhole) oesophageal cancer surgery during my time in Tokyo and Brisbane. I assisted in my first bypass procedure in 1995 and have been independently performing laparoscopic weight loss procedures since 2006 including gastric band, gastric bypass, sleeve gastrectomy and gastric balloon.
