Overview

About me

I graduated from King's College, London in 1997 with a BSc (Hons) in Pharmacology and from Leicester University Medical School in 2003. I completed my postgraduate specialist training in the East of England (Cambridge) deanery training rotation and am dual accredited in both Gastroenterology and General Internal Medicine. I was awarded with an MRCP (Gastroenterology) in 2011 and a certificate of completion of training in Gastroenterology and General Internal Medicine in March 2015.

Throughout my training I acquired extensive experience in the diagnosis and management of a wide spectrum of gastrointestinal (GI) disorders including complex Inflammatory Bowel Disease (IBD), upper and lower GI cancer, pancreaticobiliary, functional and GI dysmotility disorders. I have a subspecialty interest in Endoscopy and was awarded and undertook a Fellowship in Advanced Endoscopy at Addenbrookes Hospital, Cambridge. It was during this time that I further developed my endoscopic skills in several areas, including resection of large benign polyps, ERCP and balloon enteroscopy.

I am the Clinical Director and Lead for Endoscopy and have been working as a Consultant Gastroenterologist and General Physician at the Luton and Dunstable Hospital since 2015. I am a core member of the Endoscopy Clinical Governance and Colorectal Multidisciplinary Teams. I am also the lead for JETS Endoscopy training and regularly act as an external faculty member on JAG accredited training courses.

I am proficient in diagnostic and therapeutic gastroscopy (including all modalities for emergency UGI bleeds), flexible sigmoidoscopy, colonoscopy and ERCP (for gallstones, jaundice and bile duct exploration). I am accredited as a National Bowel Cancer Screening Colonoscopist and have a weekly dedicated therapeutic list for EMR (Endoscopic Mucosal Resection); allowing the removal of large polyps without the need for surgery. In addition, I also introduced and undertake a regular deep sedation list for prolonged therapeutic procedures as well as for those who are unable to tolerate endoscopic investigations under conscious sedation.
