I undertook my surgical training in Yorkshire and London culminating in two fellowships at St. Mark's Hospital, Harrow in laparoscopic colorectal surgery and complex colorectal disease.
I was awarded an MD degree for research into the genetic profile of colorectal cancer and completed a fellowship in medical management.
I retain an interest in clinical research and pursue roles in medical publishing and surgical education in the UK and Europe.
