About me

I have a wide experience in all aspects of elective and emergency surgery having trained in London, Leeds and South Wales. I have a special interest in inguinal (groin) hernia surgery and run my NHS Trusts Hernia pathway to streamline and improve patient care.
I spent some time as a mission surgeon in South Africa and am fortunate to still be able to continue operating in many foreign countries on a charitable / humanitarian basis, primarily on hernia patients. I have given Plenary lectures for the Association of Surgeons of Great Britain & Ireland and the British and European Hernia Societies.

My qualifications are listed here:
1980 BSc. (Hons)
1983 MB BS
1987 FRCS (Ed.)
1988 FRCS (Eng.)
1992 Master of Surgery (Univ. of London)

Areas of interest

My major interest is in the repair of primary and recurrent inguinal hernias; femoral hernias; and umbilical hernias. I specialise in repairs carried out under local anaesthesia for the less fit patient.

I manage all types of colorectal and anal pathology; I accept patients who are concerned about their symptoms based on NICE guidelines such bleeding, a persistent altered bowel habit and unexplained weight loss.
