About me

I am a General and Bariatric surgeon who specialises in surgery for symptomatic gallstone disease, hernia surgery and weight loss surgery.

Since becoming a consultant in 2014 I have developed a specialist interest in delivering laparoscopic gallbladder surgery in both elective and emergency settings, aiming to offer timely intervention with keyhole surgery for gallstone disease.

I perform hernia surgery using both laparoscopic (key-hole) and open techniques for inguinal, femoral, ventral, epigastric, incisional and umbilical hernias.

I took up my post as a Consultant General and Bariatric Surgeon in August 2014 having completed my surgical training in the North East, graduating from Newcastle Medical School in 2004. I benefitted from training at Sunderland Royal Hospital when bariatric surgery became an accepted NHS treatment for morbid obesity and Sunderland then became the busiest NHS bariatric centre in the country. I specialise in Laparoscopic Bariatric surgery offering Roux en Y Gastric Bypass, Sleeve Gastrectomy, Gastric band surgery and Mini/Single Anastomosis Gastric bypass. I also perform revisional Bariatric surgery. I have published on a wide range of Bariatric surgery topics and run training courses for consultant surgeons hoping to learn the Mini/single anastomosis procedure.

At Sunderland Royal Hospital I am the Clinical Governance lead for General Surgery and am the nominated lead for Junior Doctor training in surgery. I teach on the regional surgical training program and on national courses at the Royal College of Surgeons.
