About me

I qualified from Edinburgh Medical School in 1995. I trained in Scotland and Yorkshire before being appointed as a Consultant in Thoracic Surgery at Bristol Royal Infirmary in 2007.

I became lead clinician of the Department of Thoracic Surgery in Bristol in 2008 and oversaw a massive expansion in activity, including a 250% increase in lung cancer surgery. During this time the unit pioneered Enhanced Recovery After Surgery (ERAS) and became one of the leading centres in European for minimally-invasive lung surgery/"keyhole" surgery (or VATS - video-assisted thoracoscopic surgery).

I continue to lead internationally on ERAS. I am the lead author for the recently published international ERAS Society guidelines for enhanced recovery after lung surgery.

I am also actively involved in research. I am the lead for several trials, including research into minimally-invasive surgery and pain relief after surgery. I have published over 30 papers and have also authored 6 textbook chapters.
