About me

I had a comprehensive training in both benign and malignant upper GI surgery (both open and laparoscopic), HPB surgery, hernia surgery (open/laparoscopic) in Addenbrooke's Hospital, Cambridge and other hospitals within East of England.

Since January 2011, I was appointed as consultant upper GI (Oesophagogastric cancer resection) surgeon at both West Herts and East & North Herts Hospital (permanent post) within the Mount Vernon Cancer Network. I am experienced in open and laparoscopic surgery for Upper GI Cancer (oesophagus and stomach) and benign conditions (anti-reflux, achalasia, hiatus and paraoesophageal hernia). As well as biliary surgery (gallstones), hernia and other gastrointestinal surgery.

Since the beginning of this year, I have taken the Specialist Multidisciplinary Treatment Lead role for the Upper GI Cancer at Watford Hospital.

I introduced and lead the enhanced recovery programme for the upper GI cancer cases at Watford General Hospital since May 2011. This programme will speed patient journey and ensure safe uneventful recovery following major cancer resection surgery.

My private practice include regular clinics and theatre session in both Spire Bushey and Spire Harpenden Hospitals.
