Professional profile

I'm a Consultant General and Gastrointestinal Surgeon. I commenced my postgraduate surgical training in the UK in 1991. I completed my specialist surgical training in the Manchester region and was appointed as a Consultant General and Upper GI Surgeon at Stockport NHS Foundation Trust in 2002 where I was the Lead Upper GI Surgeon for the Trust for seven years.

My specialist interests include laparoscopic (keyhole) surgery, endoscopy, hernia repairs, gallstone management and gallbladder removal, management of chronic acid reflux and surgery for hiatus hernia.

I have carried out over 5,000 general and gastrointestinal procedures as a specialist Consultant surgeon. I'm supported by an experienced team, who share my commitment to excellence and will work collaboratively with referring clinicians and other specialists to manage your overall care. I keep up to date with the latest developments in my specialist area and I'm still actively involved in teaching and training of junior surgeons and other healthcare professionals.

I'm actively involved in clinical research and educational events for other healthcare professionals and the general public. I've presented at national and international meetings and published many articles in peer review journals. I'm also Co-Director of Manchester Hernia Clinic.

Personal Profile

Away from work I'm married with two teenage boys, who keep me busy and grounded. I support numerous local charity events as well as Water Aid, which provides clean and safe drinking water to people in the developing world. In my spare time I enjoy following Manchester United and a game of golf with friends, even though I tend to approach the holes via the scenic route!
