About me

I am an established General, Upper Gastrointestinal, laparoscopic and endoscopic surgeon, practicing for more than 15 years.
I specialise in all hernia surgeries, gall stone, acid-reflux, hiatus hernia, achalasia and Upper GI cancer disorders.

I carry out routinely advanced laparoscopic surgeries, endoscopies including dilatation, placements of stents etc. I were first to establish STRETTA (Endoscopic Anti-reflux Radio-frequency Treatment) centre in UK and hold 'Live' training courses. I have introduced Restech pH studies to investigate and manage patients with acid reflux and LPR (cough, lumpy sensation in the throat, cranky voice etc).
