I am a full time NHS Consultant Oral & Maxillofacial Surgeon and the Clinical Lead (Head of Department) for Oral & Maxillofacial Surgery and Orthodontics at Bedford Hospital. I lead the TMJ (temporomandibular joint) Service for East of England and have set up the Regional TMJ Service for East of England at the Luton & Dunstable Hospital. I am also Lead for the Facial Deformity MDT and Deputy Chair of the Skin Cancer MDT at Bedford Hospital.
I was appointed as a consultant in 2015 after completing a Royal College of Surgeons of England fellowship in Cosmetic & Reconstructive Surgery. I was awarded the Gold Medal in the FRCS(OMFS) examination and ranked number one in the UK at application to higher surgical training. I am a faculty member on national and international courses in the specialty and have an interest in teaching trainees. I am a reviewer for 3 UK based peer reviewed surgical journals and am actively involved in ongoing clinical research and audit.
I am a leader in patient safety within the NHS trusts in which I work and am the Trust Lead for Clinical Human Factors in Bedford Hospital.
Areas of interest
1) Surgical dermatology and the management of skin cancers of the head & neck, plus benign skin conditions. I have completed training in the use of dermoscopy to aid clinical diagnosis, and am fully trained in the use of medical lasers.
2)TMJ (jaw joint) problems and associated conditions. I have set up a tertiary centre at the Luton & Dunstable Hospital and receive referrals from the whole of Anglia, a large part of the Midlands and can provide the full range of TMJ surgery including level 1 & 2 arthroscopy, open surgery and joint replacement.
3) Facial deformity (traumatic or developmental) assessment and surgery, including orthognathic surgery, genioplasty, rhinoplasty and facial implants.
4) I have an ongoing interest and expertise in non-surgical and surgical facial aesthetics and skincare.
