I am a senior Consultant Plastic, Reconstructive and Aesthetic Surgeon, and Lead Specialist Skin Cancer Surgeon, with NHS and private practices providing a wide range of surgery for women, men and children in Buckinghamshire and the surrounding counties. I have been on the Specialist Register of the General Medical Council for Plastic Surgery for 21 years.
My professional commitment to quality of care through a meticulous approach and careful surgery is matched by my personal commitment to giving people the information and time they need to make the choice that’s right for them and supporting them throughout, from their first consultation to their care after surgery.

I have been involved in research throughout my career, to learn and develop my own knowledge and contribute to improvements in technique, treatments and outcomes. I also regularly review outcomes at team meetings and actively audit my results and compare them against national and international standards to ensure they compare very favourably.
