My main interests are colorectal cancer, benign colorectal disorders, advanced laparoscopic (keyhole) surgery, pelvic floor disorders (faecal incontinence and obstructed defaecation) and new treatments for haemorrhoids.
Having studied medicine at Bristol University I undertook my surgical training in the South West Region. Having gained specialist recognition I undertook further sub-specialty training and was awarded an Ethicon Colorectal Laparoscopic Fellowship under Mr U Khot at Morriston Hospital in Swansea. I then completed a Pelvic Floor Fellowship under Mr P Durdey at the Bristol Royal Infirmary before taking up my current Consultant post as a colorectal surgeon with a specialist interest in laparoscopic and pelvic floor surgery.

For my MD I carried out research into the effects of pre-operative radiotherapy on the colon and rectum, under the supervision of Mr M Thomas at the Bristol Royal Infirmary. I was also awarded the Enid Linder Royal College of Surgeons of England Research Fellowship.
I enjoy spending time with the family and relax by cooking and listening to a wide range of music. We enjoy travel and I compete in sprint and olympic triathalons.
