"Spire St Anthony's Hospital has fantastic facilities and my patients are looked after extremely well."
I am a Consultant Oral and Maxillofacial Surgeon with a sub-speciality interest in head and neck and skin cancer.
Apart from head and neck cancer surgery and reconstruction techniques, my practice includes surgical management of skin cancers and reconstruction of such defects, dentoalveolar surgery, surgical removal of wisdom teeth and roots, assessment of white/red patches in the oral cavity, management of cysts and tumours of the jaws, facial trauma, fat and bone grafting, dental implants and salivary gland surgery.
I am based at St George's Hospital, London and Epsom and St Helier Hospitals, Surrey. I am qualified in both Medicine and Dentistry and have won several academic awards and distinctions during my career. I have had wide exposure and comprehensive training in all aspects of the specialty. My specialist training in Oral & Maxillofacial Surgery was based at St George’s, Guys' and King's College Hospitals in London. Following completion of specialist training and achievement of the FRCS (OMFS), I embarked on an overseas fellowship in Hamburg, Germany. I then undertook the prestigious Chris O’Brien Fellowship at the internationally renowned Sydney Head and Neck Cancer Institute. This fellowship provided an excellent experience in head and neck cancer and reconstructive surgery, melanoma and non-melanoma skin cancers, robotic surgery and surgery for correction of facial palsy.
I am a Core Member of the South West London Head and Neck Cancer Multidisciplinary team and also of the Epsom and St Helier Skin Cancer Multidisciplinary teams and my cancer patients are discussed in these meetings. I have published widely and have presented at both national and international meetings.
I am an enthusiastic trainer and an Educational Supervisor for specialty trainees in South West London. I also teach medical students and have been an examiner for both Imperial College London and Kings College London Medical Schools. I have a sensitive, patient focused, contemporary and evidence-based approach to my clinical work.
