About me

I am a consultant surgeon working in a major teaching hospital with a large practice in endocrine, hernia and general surgery.

I am trained in laparoscopic (keyhole) surgery and have extensive experience in the management of thyroid and parathyroid endocrine disease, acute surgical disease and gallbladder disease.

My areas of expertise in groin hernia surgery is in open local anesthetic with sedation. This operation is available to those wanting quick recovery times, older patients and those with complicated health conditions. Most patients are capable of walking out of the hospital 1 hour post surgery without needing significant pain relief.

I am Director in Outcomes and Regional Lead in Quality Improvement in emergency surgery.

I set up the Wessex Endocrine Society with the aim of improving patient experience in endocrine surgery.

I have recently been awarded the iWantGreatCare Certificate of Excellence 2022 in recognition of consistently outstanding patient feedback.
