About me

I am a Consultant Colorectal, Laparoscopic & General Surgeon at The Hillingdon and Mount Vernon Hospitals, where I have a varied general and colorectal surgical practice.

I completed my higher surgical training in major hospitals in London, inc Charing Cross and St Mary's. I also did a fellowship at St Mark's Hospital, London, which is an internationally renowned centre for bowel diseases. This was followed by a Laparoscopic Colorectal Fellowship in Frimley Hospital, Surrey.

I undertook a period of research for over two years on rectal cancer, and was awarded the degree of MD (Research) by the University of London.

My main interests are laparoscopic (keyhole- minimally invasive) surgery for both general surgical and colorectal conditions, both benign and malignant, and the Enhanced Recovery Programme. I am interested in laparoscopic surgery for gall bladder disease and hernias. I also have an interest in proctology inc. management of PR bleeding, minimally invasive treatments for haemorrhoids, perianal sepsis incl. anal fistulas and Botox for anal fissures. I perform colonoscopies regularly.

Areas of interest

Laparoscopic procedures ('keyhole surgery') and open procedures for abdominal wall hernias & gall bladder disease ;
Laparoscopic colorectal surgery (lower GI) for cancerous & non cancerous disorders of the bowel; Proctology inc minimally invasive procedures for haemorrhoids and Botox for anal fissures; Colonoscopy and flexible sigmoidoscopy
