I am a Consultant Plastic, Reconstructive, Hand and Peripheral Nerve Surgeon. I studied at medical school in Delhi University and went on to complete my Masters in Surgery and Plastic Surgery. After my initial training in the prestigious plastic surgery units in Chelmsford and Swansea, I was appointed to the Mersey Plastic Surgery Registrar Training scheme where I underwent six years of plastic surgery training and was involved in clinical research with over 100 research paper presentations and publications.
After completing my hand fellowship in Liverpool, I was then appointed to Advanced Training hand fellowship in Birmingham where I successfully undertook my British and European Hand Diploma exams in 2013. I then went on to develop my specialist interest in peripheral nerve surgery and refine my skills in major trauma management and microsurgical reconstruction.
I was awarded the Douglas Murray Travelling award to travel to Bangkok to expand on my brachial plexus and peripheral nerve interest. I was also awarded FESSH travelling award to travel to Paris to further develop my interest in hand and peripheral nerve interest before commencing my Consultant job at the University Hospital of South Manchester in 2014. I currently divide my time working at Wythenshawe Hospital, Salford Royal Hospital, and Trafford General Hospital within the NHS. I am a founding member of the Manchester Hand Centre, which has the goal of centralising and driving excellence in NHS hand surgery across Manchester
I am passionate about teaching and training and actively teach higher surgical trainees as a matter of course, and have presented more than 150 papers both nationally and internationally. I have published more than 50 peer reviewed articles and have contributed to book chapters, and am involved in the assessment of higher surgical trainees nationally. I have been part of the first two Masters in hand surgery. I was awarded the certificate of excellence in education by the North West School of Surgery in 2015.
My areas of particular interest are complex and microsurgical limb reconstruction, brachial plexus and peripheral nerve surgery, and I undertake this alongside managing all common hand conditions including trauma and emergencies.
