About me

I graduated from the University of the Witwatersrand in 1989 and spent 4 years as a post graduate in South Africa before returning to the UK.
Here I was a junior doctor in the midlands for 2 years before specialising for 7 years on the north east rotation. During this time I was awarded the Joseph facial Plastic Surgery Fellowship and subsequently spent time in centres of facial plastic surgery excellence in Europe plus I passed the American Facial Plastic Surgery Boards. I have been a consultant in Brighton since October 2003 and have developed a super specialist practice in rhinology and facial plastic / reconstructive surgery. Allied to this I am an Honorary Senior Lecturer at the Brighton and Sussex Medical School plus I lecture both nationally and internationally on advanced rhinology and facial plastic surgery.
