BMed Sci, BMBS, PhD, FRCSEd


Specialises in

I was appointed as a Consultant in Hepato-pancreatico-biliary (HPB) and General Surgery at University Hospitals Southampton NHS Trust in 2013. I graduated from the University of Nottingham Medical School with a BMed Sci in Biochemistry in addition to my medical degree (BM BS). I completed my basic surgical training in Birmingham including time as an Honorary Clinical Lecturer in the Division of Anatomy at Birmingham Medical School.

I went on to complete a PhD by thesis in Gastrointestinal Surgery at the Academic Unit of Cancer Studies at the University of Nottingham under the supervision of Professor Brian Rowlands and the late Professor Susan Watson. During my time in formal research, I was shortlisted for the Patey Prize and the SET for Britain Millenium Medal for Britain’s Younger Scientists. I completed higher surgical training with specialisation in Hepato-pancreatico-biliary (HPB) Surgery and Liver Transplantation in the West Midlands with time predominantly spent at the renowned Birmingham Liver Unit. This was followed by a year long Fellowship in Laparoscopic (keyhole) HPB Surgery under the mentorship of Mr Neil Pearce at Southampton General Hospital. I was awarded the Fellowship of the Royal College of Surgeons (FRCS) in General Surgery in 2010 and the Certificate of Completion of Training (CCT) in March 2013.

In addition to General Surgery, my main interests lie in the treatment of benign and malignant disorders of the liver, gallbladder and pancreas. I also have a special interest in minimally invasive surgical techniques, in the treatment of neuroendocrine tumours (NETS) in the abdomen, ocular melanoma liver metastatic disease and in multi-organ resections for large abdominal tumours.
