Mr Sultan has also excellent experience at bariatric surgery and has been trained by Mr P Small at the Sunderland Royal Hospital.

1) Does prehabilitation improve cardiopulmonary exercise performance and reduce insulin resistance in patients undergoing neo-adjuvant treatment and surgery for oesophago-gastric cancer?
The following has been involved:
• Setting up a tri-modal service from the beginning with a personal trainer, dietician and counsellors
• £45,000 has been generated from various funding streams successfully in order to fund this project.
• Orgnaising a SLA between the Surrey Sports Park and RSCH
• Starting this MD research project which is in progress and supervising a surgical registrar through this project
2) I am recruiting patients into the multi-centre RCT Neo-Aegis trial comparing neo-adjuvant chemotherapy versus chemo-radiotherapy
3) I am recruiting patients into OCCMAS for the last 2 years
4) I am in the process of setting up a bio-bank for the oesophago-gastric cancers prospectively in collaboration with the University of Surrey
In my free time, I enjoy raising money for numerous charities which has included the completion of an abseil and zip wire descent for the OesophaGoose, oesophageal and gastric cancer campaign. I regularly play cricket at a local club. I enjoy learning about other cultures and travelling.
