About me

My commitment to vascular surgery is stronger today than ever. I enjoy the attention to detail required to diagnose the conditions that I treat, as well as formulating and executing bespoke treatment plans for all my patients.

I always ensure that my patients benefit from my highly-specialised training. After graduating from Southampton I undertook my basic surgical training in East Anglia before moving to London. There I undertook research for my Doctorate in Medicine from Imperial College London - sponsored by The Royal College of Surgeons of England and the Stroke Association. Thereafter I completed my specialist training in vascular surgery at national and international centres of excellence, including The Royal Brisbane & Women's Hospital in Queensland, Australia.

As a ‘next generation’ vascular surgeon I have honed my skills in managing venous and arterial disease. I am therefore excellently placed to offer up-to-the-minute management in all vascular disorders.
