About me

I am a Consultant General and Laparoscopic Surgeon with a subspecialty interest in Hepatobiliary pancreas surgery (diseases of the liver , gallbladder , bile duct and pancreas ). My thorough approach combined with my endeavour to provide high quality and safe patient care ensuring utmost patient satisfaction makes me one of the most sought-after surgeons, held in high esteem by staff and patients as evidenced through patient reviews I have a high volume surgical practice at my current NHS base and have a strong interest in robotics, artificial intelligence and ambulatory surgery .

Laparoscopic( keyhole ) /Open Gallbladder Surgery:
I am the principal investigator in two national trials at MKUH.
The Sunflower trial which investigates the role of MRI in gallstones and the S-Gallop trial looking at incidental gallbladder cancer in patients who have had gallbladder removal .
I offer rapid diagnosis and management of gallstones having performed more than 500 laparoscopic (keyhole) cholecystectomies with a 99 percent daycase rate as evidenced through regular audit. My specialist skills in Hepatobiliary surgery enable management of complex and acute gallstone disease, bile duct stones and pancreatitis. I have also developed a pathway for management of acute gallbladder disease in my NHS practice.
Laparoscopic(keyhole)/ Open groin hernia surgery:
I have a special interest in minimally invasive surgery of groin hernia, open hernia operations and management of recurrent groin hernia. I choose the best approach in managing these conditions tailored to patient choice. Based on recently published international guidelines I offer consultations to asymptomatic patients as an early operation has better long term outcome than wait and watch in this group of patients.
Complex abdominal wall reconstruction / Abdominal wall hernia - laparoscopic /open approach:
Umbilical hernia, ventral hernia , Incisional hernia and complex abdominal wall hernia result in poor abdominal wall function and quality of life of patients . I offer abdominal wall reconstruction as well as abdominal hernia repair by laparoscopic/open techniques through a multidisciplinary approach ensuring good functional and cosmetic outcome .
Acute abdominal surgery: laparoscopic and open operations for inflammed gallbladders, appendicitis, small bowel and large bowel conditions, diagnostic laparoscopy for pain.
Excision of skin lesions and surgical management of haemorrhoids/ fissure /anal skin tags.
Education and training
I qualified in 1992 followed by MS in General Surgery from a major tertiary referral centre , Delhi and completed my higher specialist surgical training in General and Hepatobiliary Pancreatic Surgery across London’s most prestigious hospitals including UCLH, Royal Free Hospital , Royal Marsden Hospital and King’s College Hospital . Additionally, I completed the Mc Master fellowship at Queen Elizabeth Hospital Birmingham and a fellowship in Robotic surgery at University Hospital, Pisa. I was appointed as a HPB consultant at Royal Liverpool prior to moving to my current NHS base at Milton Keynes where I have a high volume surgical practice including emergency surgery.
I am a recipient of the European Society of Surgical Oncology Fellowship and Peter Samuel Grant (Royal Free NHS Trust).
Academic achievements
I was awarded an MD in 2008 from the University College of London for my research work which demonstrated the protective role of preconditioning on organs by regulation of endothelial function. I have published in peer reviewed journals and presented at International conferences. I am a reviewer for the British Journal of Surgery.
