I am a Consultant General, Hepatobiliary and Pancreatic (HPB) Surgeon specialising in benign and malignant conditions of the Pancreas, Liver and Gallbladder.
I specialise in laparoscopic (keyhole) surgery for gallstones (Cholecystectomy) and perform over 400 gallbladder operations annually. In addition to laparoscopic gallbladder surgery, I also carry out major laparoscopic and open liver and pancreas surgery, predominantly for cancer.
After completing my Basic and Specialist Surgical training in Manchester, I undertook Fellowships in Hepatobiliary Surgery and Transplantation in Leeds and Cambridge before being appointed as a Consultant Surgeon in Leicester.
Other interests include management of benign HPB conditions like liver and pancreatic cysts in addition to pancreatitis (and its complications). I also carry out diagnostic and therapeutic endoscopic procedures like Gastroscopies (OGD) and Endoscopic Ultrasound Scans (EUS).
I have also helped pioneer Robotic HPB Surgery in Leicester.
