Having spent three years working in sepsis and organ failure research at the Medical College of Virginia, USA, he returned as Lecturer and then Senior Lecturer and Honorary Consultant Surgeon to the Academic Surgical Unit at St James’ University Hospital, Leeds. A continued research and clinical interest in sepsis and nutrition provided an opportunity to join the staff at St Mark’s Hospital in London as colorectal surgeon and surgeon to the intestinal failure unit.

He has now moved to join the staff as Consultant Surgeon to University College Hospital London, and Honorary Senior Lecturer at the University College London. Since moving from St Mark’s he has retained an expertise and busy national referral practice focused on the management of the surgical abdominal catastrophe, which includes to a large extent the management of complex inflammatory bowel disease. With the emerging subspecialty of Abdominal Wall Reconstruction he has also developed a national referral practice for the management of complex abdominal wall hernias.

He maintains a busy practice in the generality of colorectal surgery including pathology such as, colorectal cancer, Crohn’s and Colitis, diverticular disease, and haemorrhoids.
