About me

I have been a Substantive Consultant Upper GI Surgeon at the Sandwell Hospital, West Birmingham NHS Trust. I specialize in Laparoscopic General and Upper GI surgery with specific area of interest in Gallstone disease, Abdominal wall and groin hernia, Gastro-oesophageal reflux disease and Hiatus hernia. I also remove lumps and bumps in the body. I also carry out key surgery for Acute Appendicitis and ruptured stomach or duodenal ulcers. I am an accredited Upper GI Endoscopist.

My basic medical qualification and surgical training was in India with further advanced surgical training in various hospitals in Yorkshire where I developed interest and expertise in keyhole operations for gallstone problems, abdominal wall and groin hernias. I consolidated this experience with an year of Fellowship in an established UGI cancer and Bariatric unit at Castle Hill Hospital, Cottingham, Hull before getting my specialist GMC registration.
I dedicated 2 years of my professional career in Surgical research in the field of Pancreatic cancer and obtained higher MD research degree from UCL, London in 2009. I have around 15 publications in the peer reviewed journals with various presentations related to my research and clinical practice at national and international level.
I am a Clinical Research and Audit lead in my NHS Trust and Training and Education lead support for the British Benign UGI Surgical Society, UK (BBUGSS).
