I am trained in Hepatopancreatobiliary, Laparoscopic Bariatric surgery and anti reflux surgery.

I have been to various bariatric units based in Frankfurt, Oslo and Bruges, Baghdad and India.
I perform laparoscopic, gastric bypass surgery, mini gastric bypass surgery, gastric sleeve resections and gastric balloon insertion for surgical management of obesity. I have also performed revisional weight loss procedures. My other interests include pancreato-biliary surgery, gallstone and laparoscopic anti-reflux surgery. I have performed over 1,250 bariatric procedures and I am in the top 10 percentile of bariatric surgeons in the UK. My surgery outcomes are available at National Bariatric Surgery Registry.
I have extensively published and presented at various national and international journals and conferences. I am a member of the Association of Upper GI Surgeons, the Pancreatic Society, British Medical Association, British Obesity and Metabolic Surgery Society (BOMSS) and International Federation for the Surgery of Obesity (IFSO). I am also a commissioned officer in the Army Reserves and have recently returned home after deployment.
