- Colorectal Surgery
- General and Gastrointestinal Surgery
I am a Consultant Colorectal and General Surgeon at the Whittington NHS Trust, where I am the Lead Clinician for colorectal cancer services. I am a board member of The (London Cancer) Colorectal Cancer Pathway Group, which aims to improve all aspects of colorectal cancer management for patients in central and north-east London. My private practice is at The London Clinic.
I qualified from Leeds University School of Medicine in 1996 and also successfully completed a PhD thesis investigating the molecular causes of cancer of the colon and rectum (sponsored by the Royal College of Surgeons) in 2005.
I have spent 12 months practising at the prestigious St Mark's Hospital (Harrow, UK), which has an international reputation in colorectal disease management.
I have also received specialist training in minimally invasive (key hole/ laparoscopic) surgery for colorectal and general surgical conditions.
My main interests are in all areas of colorectal disease (rectal bleeding, haemorrhoids/piles, anal fissures, cancer of the colon and rectum; inflammatory bowel disease-ulcerative colitis and Crohn's disease; diverticular disease; rectal prolapse; pilonidal disease) and general surgical conditions such as groin/abdominal wall hernias and gallstones.
In my free time I enjoy relaxing with my family and I am also an avid supporter of the Ulster and Irish Rugby Union teams.
