Professional profile

I was appointed as a consultant plastic surgeon 11 years ago, sub-specialising in hand and reconstructive surgery having completed my training in a world class centre in the USA. I have also had expert training in cosmetic surgery and I provide a tailored service to fulfill patient requirements. I belong to a number of professional societies which demand high standards of its members.

I specialise in treating all aspects of hand surgery; traumatic injuries, fractures and nerve/tendon injuries and also longstanding conditions such as arthritis. I have a great deal of experience in operating on skin cancers both in my NHS and my private practice. These cases usually need more complex reconstruction and i am proud of my results. I offer cosmetic surgery particularly for breast and abdomen , but also perform liposuction and nose and eyelid surgery and adhere closely to the British Association of Aesthetic Surgery guidelines, with comprehensive consultants and a second free consultation and use patient satisfaction forms issued by the association.

I have performed over 300 cosmetic breast surgeries in my career, and about 70 abdominal cases along with over 50 cases of ear reduction, liposuction and nose surgeries.

I have been lead clinician for introduction of Xiapex to St George's Hospital. This is an injectable enzyme used to dissolve dupuytrens disease which causes contractions in the fingers. I am the lead consultant for the teaching programme for the trainees at St George's hospital and lead for research- i am now involved with the national research group which sets up trials for different treatments.

I am involved in the training of the medical students as well and am an examiner for the exit exam in plastic surgery just before trainees become consultants.
