I graduated from Leeds University and completed my basic surgical training in Wessex. In 2002, I undertook a period of research at The Royal London Hospital, a renowned centre for colorectal research. This research focused on pelvic floor disorders and has been presented to many learned societies both nationally and internationally, and has been published as original papers, abstracts, posters and e-media. I was awarded an MD by the University of London for this work. I continue with my surgical research and continue to publish original works.
I undertook higher surgical training in North East London which I completed in 2010. I then undertook an 18 month supra-specialist fellowship at St Marks Hospital, an internationally renowned centre for bowel diseases. This included a 6 month laparoscopic colorectal fellowship.
My clinical practice encompasses all aspects of general & colorectal surgery with a special interest in colorectal cancer, inflammatory bowel disease, proctology and hernia surgery. I also have extensive experience in laparoscopic colorectal surgery.
I sit on the faculty of various educational courses and am an accredited London Deanery Educational Supervisor. I am Undergraduate Lead for Surgery at North Middlesex Hospital and Senior Lecturer at UCLH and I remain passionate about education and surgical training.
I am married with two daughters and enjoy outdoor pursuits and cycling.
