About me

I have been a Consultant Thoracic Surgeon for 14 years and I am an expert in chest wall surgery for Pectus and lung volume reduction therapies for COPD. I am also an academic at the University of Birmingham.

I specialise in general Thoracic Surgery with specific interests in; 1. Pectus surgery both Nuss and Ravitch 2. Lung volume reduction therapy for COPD/emphysema including surgery key hole or minimally invasive surgery, endobronchial therapies such as Valves and Coils 3. Cancer affecting the lung - minimally invasive curative surgery and endobronchial diagnosis and therapies.

To date I have performed over 1,500 surgeries for cancer affecting the lung, 200 Pectus operations and over 100 procedures for lung volume reduction in both my NHS and private practice

I lead and manage a research team consisting of 10 (research nurses, doctors, data managers, Biomedical scientist) based at the University Hospital Birmingham. The team recruited 500 patients into clinical studies every year.

In addition to my clinical work, I am also proud to be a senior lecturer at the University of Birmingham. I have published over 100 articles in peer reviewed medical journals and contributed to multiple medical textbooks. My clinical research interests include; Enhanced recovery/rehabilitation for surgery, Mechanism, detection and therapy of post operative acute lung injury, Chest wall motion analysis novel technology and clinical uses, Novel Surgical treatment for Emphysema.
