About me

I qualified from Baghdad Medical School in 1999 and then undertook most of my Basic Surgical Training in Leeds Teaching Hospital, Yorkshire. During this time I obtained two degrees from the University of Hull (Diploma in Social Health and MSc in Education & Development) as well as a further third degree from the University of Leeds (Medical Doctorate in Surgery). I then moved to South Wales for my Higher Surgical Training and spent most of my time performing cancer resections of the stomach and oesophagus.

I have over 6 publications and 25 presentations in various national and international meetings. I have done many courses in General and Laparoscopic Surgery and very much enhanced my hand-eye co-ordination and skills in keyhole surgery.

My academic degrees have bridged the gap between clinical practice and research methodology.

I am a JAG (Joint Advisory Group on GI Endoscopy) accredited endoscopist and therefore, competent to a standard commensurate with independent specialist practice.

I am appointed as a Consultant Upper GI, Laparoscopic and General Surgeon in Aneurin Bevan Health Board, based at Nevill Hall Hospital. I am currently undertaking a wide range of laparoscopic procedures throughout the Health Board. I consider myself honest, hard working, friendly, and very motivated, always aiming for clinical excellence. I have outstanding communication skills, evident from patient and colleague feedback. I am regularly involved in teaching and training doctors and students at various levels.

Areas of interest

I am a trained Laparoscopic, General and Upper Gastrointestinal Surgeon. My main interest is in Laparoscopic (keyhole) Surgery.

I have a special interest in Obesity and prevention of related metabolic diseases; Laparoscopic inguinal / umbilical / incisional / epigastric hernia; Laparoscopic anti-reflux procedures and Hiatus hernia; Laparoscopic cholecystectomy and bile duct exploration; Laparoscopic Heller's Cardiomyotomy for Achalasia; Appronectomy (abdominoplasty) to remove extra abdominal wall fat; Upper and lower GI endoscopy; General lumps and bumps under local anaesthetics.
