About me

The aim of my practice is to offer high quality treatment using evidence based medicine and tailoring my expertise to the individual patient. My practice is patient orientated.
I am fully trained as a laparoscopic lower GI Surgeon especially in laparoscopic colectomy and anterior resection and abdominperineal excisions for low recital cancer.
I completed an MD at London university in the management of low recital cancer and my work has been used in the department of health's Lorec study based at Basingstoke. My supervisors for my research included Brendan Moran and Prof Heald who pioneered good quality rectal cancer surgery.
My laparoscopic training comes from centres of excellence such as St Thomas, Frimley Park and the Royal Surrey Hospitals.
