- Skin cancer
Outside of work I am keen on the outdoors & row regularly. I enjoy skiing when given the chance too. My kayak gets the occasional outing as well. I have a teenage daughter who keeps me busy so there is not that much spare time.
I love the theatre and art or photographic exhibitions. I am never far from a good book and usually have a few to read going at the same time.
Areas of interest

Dermascopic Imaging Techniques
My particular interest is skin cancer, imaging and early diagnosis. I am an experienced surgeon who thoroughly enjoys the surgical aspects of my work. I work closely with the oncologists and have developed an interest in dealing with the complications of the newer immunotherapy drugs and treatment with topical immunomodulaters. I have however, been a general dermatologist for many years and have an accumulated experience of this fascinating speciality.
