About me

I am a Consultant in General and Upper Gastrointestinal surgery at the Northern Oesophago-Gastric Unit, Royal Victoria Infirmary, Newcastle upon Tyne. I have expanded my clinical expertise by undertaking fellowships at the Upper Gastrointestinal and Hepato-Pancreatic and Biliary Unit at the Flinders Medical Centre, Adelaide, Australia, Hong Kong, China and a laparoscopic fellowship in Tokyo, Japan. My expertise is in the advanced laparoscopic surgical management of benign oesophago-gastric conditions and a minimally invasive approach to cancer of the oesophagus and stomach. My endoscopic skills include providing advanced diagnostic and therapeutic endoscopy including ERCP. I continue to perform the most number of oesophago-gastric cancer resections in the United Kingdom.
