Professional profile

I am a consultant upper GI, bariatric and laparoscopic surgeon. I provide the full range of upper GI emergency and elective services including endoscopy, bariatric surgery, gallbladder surgery, hernia surgery and anti-reflux surgery. All procedures are carried out using the laparoscopic 'key-hole' approach. I studied at the University of Cambridge and was awarded prizes for academic disinfection. I was the recipient of the 'Your Care Matters: Improving the patient experience' aware at the SASH Annual Staff Awards of Excellence 2015. This aware is presented to a person whose great work is repeatedly highlighted.

I specialise in upper GI surgery which focuses on the abdomen, stomach and gallbladder. I perform weight loss surgery, gallbladder surgery and hernia surgery.

I have been a consultant for two and a half years and set up my weight loss surgery practice. I have since performed over 130 complex procedures and all results are available on the national bariatric surgery registry (NBSR). I have performed over 300 gallbladder procedures.

I am the clinical lead surgeon for weight loss at Spire Gatwick Park.
