I am a Worcestershire born and bred Consultant Plastic Surgeon who enjoys a balance of town and country living. My NHS practice is based in Bristol and Gloucestershire and I run a successful private practice in the three counties.
I attended Bristol Medical School completing my degree with honors and an additional degree in Physiology with First class honors aided by a scholarship from the Smith and Nephew foundation. I completed 6 years of traditional surgical training passing the MRCS before 6 years of further intensive plastic surgery training culminating in the award of FRCS(Plast) and recognition by the GMC as a specialist in 2009. For the following two years I undertook prestigious and competitive fellowships studying the latest techniques in internationally recognised centres of London (Marsden), Nottingham and within Italy, supported by a scholarship from the Royal College of Surgeons and a bursary from BAPRAS (British Association of Plastic Surgeons) of which I am a full member.
My NHS practice focuses on reconstruction for trauma and cancers of the skin and soft tissues. I am a member of the skin and sarcoma MDT (Multidisciplinary teams) in Bristol.
I am a senior lecturer at Bristol University Medical School, and have over 30 peer-review publications as well as contributions to medical texts and guidance for surgeons. I have been an invited speaker to a number of national and international meetings and courses. I am also involved in the national selection of trainees in plastic surgery and local annual review of trainee competency (ARCP).
Areas of interest
I can consult on and perform the full spectrum of cosmetic and breast procedures as well as surgery for skin cancer, hand surgery and limb reconstruction. I am a member of the skin cancer and sarcoma MDT in Bristol. I believe in a reliable and personal service, a non-judgmental approach that listens to patients concerns and tailors surgery to their specific needs. My patients, including staff at the hospitals where I work, consistently return to me and recommend me to friends and new patients as they feel in safe hands.
