About me

I have been a consultant general and gastro-intestinal surgeon in Warrington since 1995. My gastro-intestinal practice is broadly based but more focused on the upper GI tract. I have extensive experience of laparoscopic (keyhole)techniques.
I carry out surgery for gallstone disease including surgical treatment of common bile duct stones. Gastro-oesophageal reflux is a major interest and I provide a service for all aspects of management. This includes investigation (endoscopy, oesophageal manometry, 24 hour oesophageal pH study), surgical treatment (anti-reflux surgery) and endoscopic management of complications (oesophageal stricture, Barrett's oesophagus). I assess and treat oesophageal motility disorders such as cardial achalasia.
Outside GI work, I am regularly involved with all types of hernia surgery including groin hernias and complex abdominal hernias.
I carry our general paediatric surgery including procedures for phimosis, inguinal hernia and testicular maldescent.
