I am a full-time consultant surgeon at the Luton & Dunstable Hospital (NHS) where I have a specialist interest in colorectal and emergency general surgery.
My areas of expertise include colorectal cancer, diverticular disease, inflammatory bowel disease (IBD) surgery (Crohn's disease & Ulcerative Colitis), open and keyhole abdominal hernia repair, anal fissure management, fistula surgery (including fistula laser surgery), open and keyhole bowel cancer surgery and complex colorectal surgery. He is also an accredited endoscopist. I also offer surgical treatment options for haemorrhoids including THD and Rafaelo procedure.
My specialist training in pelvic floor dysfunction allows me to offer patients appropriate surgery for rectal prolapse and effective management of evacuatory disorders. I have an active private practice.
I qualified in medicine from St Mary's Hospital, London in 1997 and then completed basic surgical training in the King's College surgical rotation. I did my research at the Royal Free Hospital and University College, London. I underwent specialist surgical training (colorectal surgery) in the South East Thames region. I completed my training with a senior post- Certificate of Completion of Training (CCT) fellowship in Pelvic Floor surgery at John Radcliffe Hospital, Oxford.
I have an interest in clinical surgery and pelvic floor dysfunction, and have published papers in peer-reviewed journals on topics such as ‘Mesorectal thickness as a marker of difficulty in laparoscopic rectal surgery’ and patient safety matters. I am a member of the Britsh Medical Association, American Society of Colon and Rectal Surgeons, European Society of Coloproctology, Association of Surgeons GB and Ireland and Association of Coloproctology of GB and Ireland. I actively train young surgeons in keyhole surgery, as well as teaching medical students attached to Luton and Dunstable Hospital.
