About us

I am a Consultant General and Hepato-Pancreatico-Biliary (HPB) Surgeon, Clinical Lead for General Surgery at Manchester Royal Infirmary, and Director of The Gallstone Clinic, Manchester Surgical Clinic, and Manchester Hernia. I am an Expert Reviewer for BUPA for Gallstones, Hernias and Abdominal pain and Adhesions. I am also the expert reviewer for the British Medical Journal's recommendations for Gallstones, Acute Cholecystitis and Acute Cholangitis.

I am also very proud to be the Director of Scientific Programme of the Association of Surgeons of Great Britain and Ireland (ASGBI).

My private rooms are at Spire Manchester Hospital, Spire Kenmore Clinic in Wilmslow, and BMI The Alexandra Hospital, Cheadle.

I graduated with a First Class Honours Degree in Biochemistry and then went on to graduate with Honours in Medicine from the University of Manchester in 2000. I completed a period of research and was awarded a Doctorate of Medicine for my thesis on Sepsis in 2008. I completed my Higher Surgical Training in the North Western Deanery and have worked in London, Cambridge, Nottingham and Manchester before taking up a Consultant position at St James’s University Hospital in Leeds where I practiced advanced pancreatic, gallbladder and bile duct surgery for 5 years. I returned to Manchester in August 2018 to take up a Consultant post at Manchester University Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust.

I provide elective and emergency general surgery as well as being part of the regional HPB unit specialising in the investigation and management of gallstones and gallbladder problems, pancreatitis, liver and pancreatic cysts and tumours.

I have a special interest in advanced laparoscopic (keyhole) surgery of the gallbladder and bile duct, open and laparoscopic hernia surgery, investigation and management of abdominal pain and liver and pancreas disorders.

I have a great interest in day-case gallbladder surgery and improving patient satisfaction whilst in hospital. My other passion is Medical Education; I thoroughly enjoy training the doctors of tomorrow. I am also interested in Research, I am the Principal Investigator of clinical trials, and involved in National Quality Improvement projects to help improve the lives of Manchester's residents and shape the NHS of the future.

I am also leading on a number of Service Development projects in Greater Manchester to improve Emergency General Surgery in the conurbation.

Out of the workplace I enjoy cooking, travel, fine wine and racket sports. I have recently rekindled my enjoyment of golf and hope to improve my handicap.
