I am pleased to be undertaking private clinics at the Nuffield Health, Plymouth as a Consultant General, Colorectal and Paediatric Surgeon.
I am very excited about this opportunity, as at present, there has not been a Paediatric Surgeon available to private patients, and I am sure that you will agree, that private patients can now be reassured knowing that we are able to offer general paediatric treatments here at the Nuffield.
With regards to Paediatrics, I specialise in all types of Paediatric surgery, including all types of hernia.
I have twenty-one years of general surgical experience and have completed three years of structured training in general surgical specialities for the award of Master of Surgery. For two years I worked as an Assistant Professor of general surgery in a University Hospital in India. For four years I then worked as a junior specialist in sultanate of Oman. Finally, for the past twelve years I have been working in UK within the colorectal surgery department.
Since 1994 I have been working in General Surgery and have completed FRCS (Gen Sur/Colorectal) and EBSQ (Coloproctology).
Since February 2012 I have been practicing as a Consultant Colorectal Surgeon in Plymouth (UK) with special interest in laparoscopic colorectal surgeries with active involvement in surgical research. I have completed Lap co training with Lapco Train the trainer program and now actively teach Laparoscopic colorectal surgeries. I have independently performed more than 150 laparoscopic colorectal resections.
In 2014 I underwent General Paediatric surgical top up training from Bristol children’s hospital and started to perform general paediatric surgeries in Derriford hospital, Plymouth.
My main clinics are every Wednesday from 1700 - 1900 but appointments can be made by agreement with my secretary who will contact me to find a suitable date for you.
