MB ChB, FRCS, MD, M.MinInvSu, DipMedEd
I was appointed as a Consultant Colorectal and General Surgeon at the Leicester Royal Infirmary in 2010 where I remain a full-time member of staff. I am currently the lead clinician for colorectal cancer at the Leicester Royal Infirmary. I have been in private practice for over five years, seeing insured and self-pay patients at both the Nuffield and Spire Hospitals in Leicester.
I underwent surgical training in and around the East Midlands region and undertook a Fellowship in Minimally Invasive Surgery (keyhole surgery / laparoscopic surgery) in Adelaide, Australia. During that time I also completed a Masters Degree in Minimally Invasive Surgery at the University of Adelaide. My other qualifications include:
1998 University of Leicester
MD (with distinction)
2002 University of Leicester
2009 Royal College of Surgeons of England
Dip Med Ed
2016 University of Dundee
My main interests are minimally invasive (keyhole) treatments for bowel cancer, Crohn’s Disease and Ulcerative Colitis, including pouch surgery. I am also an accredited Bowel Cancer Screening colonoscopist and therefore see patients at all stages of the disease process. I regularly see patients with benign perianal problems and offer some of the newer, more minimally invasive options.
I see many patients with abdominal wall and groin hernias and offer both keyhole (laparoscopic) and open surgery. I am a member of the British Hernia Society.
In addition to my surgical practice, I am a Senior Lecturer at the University of Leicester, coordinating and delivering the surgical curriculum to undergraduate medical students. I am involved in surgical research, collaborative projects and both clinical and commercial trials.
Outside of work I relish spending time with my family, cycling and charity work.
