I am a Consultant Surgeon specialising in complex liver, pancreas and bile duct diseases with a specialist interest in advanced laparoscopic surgical techniques and the development of modern surgical innovations. I have pioneered various special techniques in Virtual Scarless surgery. I am among a handful of surgeons who have introduced these techniques worldwide.
I completed my higher degree (MD) at the University of Leeds working with an internationally renowned team researching organ preservation. I did the pioneering work on cold liver preservation techniques, developing a novel liver preservation solution. My work was funded by the Royal College of Surgeons of England via a research fellowship. I completed my higher surgical training in Mid Trent higher surgical rotation, before being appointed as a Consultant HPB Surgeon (Liver, pancreas and bile ducts) in NHS Grampian.
