Professional profile

I am a Consultant Colorectal and General Surgeon at the Royal Sussex County Hospital, Brighton & Sussex University Hospitals NHS Trust. I studied medicine at St. George’s, University of London. My higher surgical training commenced in London and the North East Thames region with further specialist experience at St. Mark’s Hospital, London, Queen Alexandra Hospital (robotic rectal cancer surgery) and the national Ethicon Endo-Surgery Laparoscopic Colorectal Fellowship at Frimley Park Hospital. I have gained extensive experience in a range of procedures including laparoscopic TME, pouch surgery and complex fistula repair. I have also completed two years of complex and simple inflammatory bowel disease (IBD) surgery at various tertiary referral centres such as St. Mark's and The Royal London Hospital.

I embarked on a two year period of full time research at the Colorectal Cancer Unit, St. Mark’s Hospital which led to an MD awarded in 2009. Publications from my thesis include prevalence of AIN in immunosuppressed patients and a novel oncogenic pathway in anal cancer development. I received the national Moynihan medal for original research at The Association of Surgeons of Great Britain & Ireland in 2008. Currently, I am interested in optimisation of surgical outcomes of Crohn’s disease resection.

My main interests include surgical management of inflammatory bowel disease, colorectal cancer surgery, colonoscopy, management of haemorrhoids and general surgical conditions including hernia and gallstone disease.
