I am a Professor of Hepatobiliary Pancreatic and Minimally Invasive surgery at Southampton University Hospitals NHS Trust. I trained as a general surgeon and gained further specialisation in liver surgery, pancreatic surgery and biliary surgery.
I have a special interest in Laparoscopic (keyhole) Surgery and I have led the development of keyhole surgery for the liver and pancreas in the Uk. In the last 12 years I have accumulated one of the largest international experiences in this surgical field. I have developed and published and number of laparoscopic surgical techniques and have offered training and proctoring to more than 300 surgeons from all over the world. At the moment, 90% of my practice is laparoscopic, from the simple procedures, such as laparoscopic hernia repair and gallbladder removal to the most complex pancreatic and liver resections (including Laparoscopic Whipple’s resections and Hemihepatectomies). I am very proud of this, having witnessed the great advantages the Laparoscopic approach offers to my patients, when compared to the traditional open surgery. This is reflected in different postoperative aspects including; shorter hospital stay, earlier functional recovery, and lower complication rates.

I have a strong academic interest , because I believe that there is a serious need for continuous scientific research to improve results in the treatment of Hepatobiliary-pancreatic diseases. I strongly feel that every clinician is ethically and professional expected to participate to the development of evidence based medicine through clinical and experiment research. Please see my research activity in my website http://www.allps.co.uk/research.php
