About me

I have been a consultant surgeon since 1998 and apply the extensive experience gained during this practice.

I treat a large number of patients who suffer with varicose veins. I started endovenous treatment of varicose veins in South Wales and continue to provide modern treatment of varicose veins including ultrasound guided foam sclerotherapy, radiofrequency ablation, and microsclerotherapy for thread veins.

I also see patients with aortic aneurysm, peripheral arterial disease causing pain on walking (intermittent claudication) and severe cases that develope gangrene.

I manage patients with Thoracic Outlet Syndrome, a condition that causes pain, numbness, tingling, colour changes of the upper limb.

I was the surgeon that set up and now quality assures the Wales Abdominal Aortic Aneurysm Screening Programme.

Training the new generation of surgeons remains important to me. I set up the Wales School of Postgraduate Surgery in 2008, it gives me immense pleasure to see it continue being successful.
