Professional profile

I am a father of 4 and a Consultant Paediatric Surgeon at St George's Hospital, London. I am Chairman of the Intercollegiate Board of Examiners in Paediatric Surgery. I am also an Honorary Senior Lecturer with The St George's Hospital Medical School, University of London, and a Senior Journal Article Reviewer with the Journal of Paediatric Surgery. I am a general paediatric surgeon with a special interest in neonatal, and gastro-intestinal surgery. I provide vascular access for long term parenteral nutrition, or chemotherapy for children at the Royal Marsden Hospital.

I perform appendicectomies, cholecystectomies, splenectomies, and fundoplications laparoscopically when appropriate, and I perform many Percutaneous Endoscopic Gastrostomies for assisted nutrition. The most frequent operations that I perform are for inguinal hernias, hydrocoeles, undescended testicles, and belly button (umbilical) hernias, as well as circumcisions, and release of tongue ties.

The more common neonatal conditions I manage include Hirschsprung's disease, malrotation, atresias of the oesophagus, and bowel.

My common consultations are for hernias, testicular swellings, undescended testicles, abdominal pain, bowel problems, gastro-oesophageal reflux, tongue tie, problems with foreskins such as phimosis and subcutaneous swellings including neck lumps.
