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.
