About me

I was appointed Consultant Colorectal Surgeon and Honorary Senior Lecturer in Oxford in 2000.

My major areas of clinical practice are the management of rectal cancer and pelvic floor disorders. I currently lead the service for colorectal cancer in the Trust and have a particular interest in organ-preserving approaches in early rectal cancer. I have extensive experience of laparoscopic (keyhole) and minimally invasive surgery for the management of cancer, hernia and prolapse.

I lecture at home and internationally on aspects of rectal cancer management, pelvic floor disorders and minimally invasive surgery and I have published widely on these topics.
