About me

I am a Consultant Colorectal Surgeon based at Prince Charles Hospital, in Merthyr Tydfil, South Wales, where I have established a comprehensive colorectal service. I bring over 2 decades of consultant experience to my private practice. I am also an External Professor of Coloproctology, at the Faculty of Life Sciences and Education in the University of South Wales, since 2000.
Before settling down in South Wales, I completed my medical education and achieved a Masters in Surgery in Bombay, India prior to coming to the UK in 1991. I then completed Higher Training in Surgery through various hospitals in Wales, specialising in Colorectal, Laparoscopic and Endoscopic Surgery and also undertook a Visiting Fellowship with the colorectal unit at the Cleveland Clinic in the USA prior to being appointed as a Consultant Surgeon in 1996.
My passion for education has culminated in the launch of a new educational website for colorectal disease aimed at patient education as well as staff training (first of its kind in the world) .This website is constantly being upgraded, with material about different procedures being added in on a regular basis.
I have also won several awards including the Winner of the Best Hospital Doctor (Surgery) in the UK, and Best Surgical Trainer in Wales, the NHS Wales award, PEN – UK award etc.I have an active interest in surgical research and teaching with over a hundred publications/presentations and is a regular invited speaker at local and international conferences. Over the past 10 years, I have also been involved in training established consultant surgeons across the UK in the techniques of laparoscopic colorectal surgery.

¨ Laparoscopic (key-hole) colorectal surgery,
