I am a Consultant Adult Thoracic Surgeon working at St Bartholomew's Hospital, London. I qualified from Guy's, King's and St Thomas' medical school with a Bachelor of Medicine and Surgery in 2006. During my medical degree I also achieved an integrated BSc in Psycholgoy. Following medical school I went on to train in Cardiothoracic Surgery in specialist units at the Royal Brompton and Harefield and Guy's and St Thomas' Hospitals. I became a fellow of the Royal College of Surgeons in Cardiothoracic surgery in 2015.
My specialist training has allowed me to achieve a high level of experience in both minimally invasive and complex open techniques. I have a particular interest in minimally invasive thoracic surgery and can offer patients VATS lobectomy and segmentectomy for both malignant and benign disease, performing 85% of lung resections through a minimally invasive approach. I have learned state of the art surgical treatment for lung cancer, mediastinal tumours, pulmonary metastases and treatment of complex thoracic cancers such as those that involve the chest wall. I also specialise in the management of endobronchial disease using cryotherapy, laser and stent insertion.
