I completed my surgical training in all aspects of colorectal and general surgery in the West Midlands and Lincolnshire.
During my training, I took time out to undertake a clinical research post at the University of Leicester. I was awarded an MD for research into the treatment of colorectal cancer using compounds derived from cruciferous vegetables e.g. sprouts.
After completing training, I undertook a post-CCT fellowship in pelvic floor dysfunction before taking up my present post as Consultant General & Colorectal Surgeon at Walsall Manor Hospital.
I specialise in general and colorectal surgery with particular interest in the management of inflammatory bowel disease (IBD) and pelvic floor problems including faecal incontinence and rectal prolapse.
In conjunction with my clinical work, I have an interest in surgical education at both undergraduate and postgraduate level. I am actively involved in teaching medical students and am the supervisor for a number of surgical trainees.
Throughout my career, I have been interested in research and have published a number of papers on various aspects of colorectal surgery and surgical education.
