About me

I have over 20 years experience as a Consultant General and Vascular Surgeon based in a busy general hospital. I trained at University College London, included a BSc in immunology and pharmacology. Qualifying in 1979 I completed my training as a General Surgeon with posts around North London, becoming a Consultant General Surgeon with a vascular interest in 1994.
Since 2016 I have been working half time at UCLH as a Vascular Surgeon principally but continue to see general surgical patients.
Currently I see patients with varicose veins, peripheral vascular disease, carotid surgery for stroke prevention and undertake general surgical procedures such as laparoscopic cholecystectomy, hernia repairs and lumps and bumps.
