I had extensive training in the surgery of the Liver and gall bladder/gall stone disease in a specialised tertiary hospital in Liverpool. I then had further training in the upper gastrintestinal surgery in west yorkshire and in the teaching hospital Hull. Prior to moving to the UK he was trained in Sri Lanka.
I was appointed to the post of Consultant Laparoscopic General/Uppergastrointestinal surgeon at the University Hospital of Derby and Burton NHS Foundation Trust (Queens Hospital, Burton-On-Trent) upon completion of training.
I am highly experienced in the treatment of gall stone disease with the most modern techniques with emphasis on rapid access to treatment and recovery. I perform Laparoscopic (Key hole) Cholecystectomy(removal of gall bladder), Laparoscopic (Key hole) Bile duct exploration. I perform Laparoscopic (Key hole) Nissens Fundoplication (Hiatus hernia surgery) and expert in Large number of hernia surgery. I am an expert in the treatment of problems with heart burn, indigestion and upper abdominal pain.
I am a very experienced hernia surgeon performing both keyhole and open surgery. I perform a wide range of hernia surgery and I am highly experienced in repairing complex and recurrent hernias in the groin and incisional hernias.
In addition to this I perform surgery for lumps and bumps and emergency surgery including Laparoscopic Appendectomy for appendicitis.
I also repair large incisional hernias using the modern technique of abdominal wall reconstruction. This technique reduces the recurrent rates of these hernias significantly.
I strive for the highest level of care, providing the very best standard of surgical treatment and patient satisfaction.
I am heavily involved in education and is an Honorary lecture at Leicester University School of Medicine where I organise teaching and training for undergraduate medical students who are aiming to become doctors. I am also the Foundation Programme Director for Junior Doctors ensuring that they have comprehensive training during their early years as a doctor.
