About me

I have a wide experience in all aspects of elective and emergency surgery having trained in London, Leeds and South Wales. I have a busy NHS practice and run the Trusts Hernia pathway to streamline and improve patient care.
I spent some time as a mission surgeon in South Africa and am fortunate to still be able to continue operating in many foreign countries on a charitable / humanitarian basis, primarily on groin hernia patients. I have given Plenary lectures for the Association of Surgeons of Great Britain & Ireland and the British and European Hernia Societies.

My qualifications are listed here:
1980 BSc. (Hons)
1983 MB BS
1987 FRCS (Ed.)
1988 FRCS (Eng.)
1992 Master of Surgery (Univ. of London)

Areas of interest

All areas of colorectal and anal surgery; I accept Bowel Cancer Direct Access patients who are concerned about their symptoms based on NICE guidelines such as anorectal bleeding, a persistent altered bowel habit and unexplained weight loss.

Abdominal wall hernias; including inguinal hernia and other groin hernias. I specialise in repairs carried out under local anaesthesia for the less fit patient.
