- Vascular surgery
I qualified from Edinburgh University Medical School in 1985, and trained in Glasgow, Edinburgh, and Sydney, before taking up an NHS consultant post in Cornwall in 1997 where I established one of the first endovascular aortic aneurysm repair (EVAR) programmes in the Southwest, and developed one of the first comprehensive NHS endovenous programmes in the UK.
After 20 years as a Consultant Vascular Surgeon at the Royal Cornwall Hospitals NHS Trust I am leaving NHS practice to further develop my interest in endovenous treatments, in order that I can provide a comprehensive range of keyhole varicose vein treatments to my patients.
I am married to Soraya, a Radiologist and we have 2 children.
