- Lower GI surgery
I am a Consultant Colorectal and General at Manchester Royal Infirmary, Central Manchester NHS Foundation Trust. I have regular operating sessions at both the BMI Alexandra Hospital in Cheadle and the Spire Hospital Manchester. I also hold a regular clinic in Kenmore Medical Centre in Wilmslow.
My primary objective is to deliver the highest quality service possible to my patients with a strong emphasis on patient safety and excellent outcomes.
My areas of specialist interest include treatment and prevention of bowel complaints. This includes benign conditions such as haemorrhoids / piles, inflammatory bowel disease and diverticular disease and malignant conditions such as colon and rectal cancer.
My general surgery work includes keyhole hernia and gallstone surgery and also benign skin lesions such as lipomas and cysts of the skin.
As part of my NHS work I regularly participate in emergency surgery treating problems such as appendicitis and acute rectal bleeding.
I am a keen endoscopist and hold full JAG accreditation for colonoscopy, sigmoidoscopy, gastroscopy and polypectomy (removal of polyps with endoscope). I am an active member of faculty at the Mersey School of Endoscopy teaching regularly on colonoscopy courses, which I thoroughly enjoy.
I have qualified and subsequently specialised in the UK. I have gained invaluable experience from international centres of excellence, having completed two post qualification fellowships including a laparoscopic colorectal fellowship in Bradford Royal Infirmary, Yorkshire and subsequently an advanced rectal cancer fellowship at the Karolinska University hospital in Stockholm.
I was elected President of the Dukes’ Club for 2014/15 and was a member of council of the Association of Coloproctology of Great Britain and Ireland for the duration of this term.
I am actively involved in audit and research locally and also at a national level recruiting patients to multiple trials.
