- Lower GI surgery
I am a consultant colorectal and general surgeon in West Hertfordshire (Hemel Hempstead, St Albans and Watford hospitals) specialising in laparoscopic (keyhole) procedures. I studied medicine at Oxford University and Guy’s and St Thomas’ medical schools, qualifying in 2002.
I specialise in diagnosis and treatment of abdominal and perianal conditions, including hernias, bowel cancers, inflammatory bowel disease, and haemorrhoids. I carry out the overwhelming majority of my major abdominal operations laparoscopically (keyhole) allowing faster recovery and early return to work and full function.
