About me

As Past-President of the British Obesity and Metabolic Surgery Society (BOMSS) I am recognised as one of the leading bariatric surgeons in the UK. I am also the Chair of the National Bariatric Surgery Registry (NBSR) and led the surgeon-level mortality data publication as part of 'Everyone Counts Promise 2' for the NHS in bariatric surgery from 2013-16. I wrote the 2nd NBSR Report in 2014.

I also have a wide practice in benign upper GI surgery including hernia surgery (groin hernias), cholecystectomy (gallbladder surgery) and operations for hiatus hernia / reflux (fundoplication).

Areas of interest

Bariatric surgery for complex obesity; Upper gastro-intestinal disease; Laparoscopic procedures ('keyhole surgery') for inguinal hernia, gallstones (cholecystectomy) and gastroesophageal reflux (fundoplication)
