About me

I am a highly trained Laparoscopic Colorectal Surgeon. I have been trained in the East Anglian region (Cambridge) and finished higher surgical training (CCT) in September 2010 working in various specialties of surgery. Since finishing my training, I have done fellowship in Laparoscopic Colorectal Surgery and have been in a consultant post for nearly six years. I have shown to be efficient, confident and safe dealing with both elective and emergency work.

I have performed more than 400 open and more than 250 laparoscopic colorectal resections. I have been JAG accredited since last five years and have performed more than 2200 colonoscopies with a completion rate of 96%. I have completed Training the Trainers course in colonoscopy and have been accredited by JAG as a trainer. At The Royal Marsden London, I have had invaluable experience of being involved in pelvic exenterations and re-do colonic resection surgery.

With regards to general surgical experience, I perform as a routine e.g. laparoscopic cholecystectomies, open & laparoscopic hernia repairs and pilonidal sinus surgery as part of my general surgical commitment.

During my previous consultant jobs at The Marsden, St Mark's & Hinchingbrooke, I followed the enhanced recovery programme, performed new procedures like TEO, HALO and have been performing laparoscopic and open surgery for primary and advanced colorectal cancers, surgery for inflammatory bowel disease and Pouch surgery. I have now moved to West Hertfordshire hospital Trust for wider experience and to accept new challenges.
