- Vascular surgery
My commitment to vascular surgery is stronger today than ever. I enjoy the attention to detail required to diagnose the conditions that I treat, as well as formulating and executing bespoke treatment plans for all my patients.
I always ensure that my patients benefit from my highly-specialised training. After graduating from Southampton I undertook my basic surgical training in East Anglia before moving to London. There I undertook research for my Doctorate in Medicine from Imperial College London - sponsored by The Royal College of Surgeons of England and the Stroke Association. Thereafter I completed my specialist training in vascular surgery at national and international centres of excellence, including The Royal Brisbane & Women's Hospital in Queensland, Australia.
As a ‘next generation’ vascular surgeon I have honed my skills in managing venous and arterial disease. I am therefore excellently placed to offer up-to-the-minute management in all vascular disorders.

Ongoing research interests include simulation in vascular surgery, end-organ damage caused by vascular intervention, biomarkers for the detection of stroke, and surgical technology. I am the Principle Investigator at NNUH for the UK LEAP study with the aim of improving the safety of patients undergoing aortic surgery.
I am married to a hard-working paediatrician and am lucky to have a young son and younger daughter. We enjoy time spent outside and I include gardening, cycling, sailing, shooting and skiing among my hobbies.
As an East Anglian farmers’ son I am delighted to return ‘home’. I love the region’s landscape, people and produce. I look forward to many years of happy service to the region.
9 book chapters and more than 30 peer-reviewed articles in learned journals on all aspects of vascular and venous disease.
