I am a Consultant Colorectal and General at Manchester Royal Infirmary, part of Manchester University NHS Foundation Trust.
My primary objective is to deliver the highest quality service possible to my patients with a strong emphasis on patient safety and excellent outcomes.
I have regular operating sessions at both the BMI Alexandra Hospital in Cheadle and the Spire Hospital Manchester. I also hold a regular clinic in Kenmore Medical Centre in Wilmslow.
My areas of specialist interest include treatment and prevention of bowel complaints. This includes benign conditions such as haemorrhoids / piles, inflammatory bowel disease and diverticular disease and malignant conditions such as colon and rectal cancer.
My general surgery work includes keyhole hernia and gallstone/ gallbladder surgery and also benign skin lesions such as lipomas and cysts of the skin.
As part of my NHS work I regularly participate in emergency surgery treating problems such as appendicitis and acute rectal bleeding.
I am a keen endoscopist and hold full JAG accreditation for colonoscopy, sigmoidoscopy, gastroscopy and polypectomy (removal of polyps with endoscope). I am an active member of faculty at the Mersey School of Endoscopy teaching regularly on colonoscopy courses, which I thoroughly enjoy.
I qualified and subsequently specialised in the UK. I have gained invaluable experience from visiting international centres of excellence, having completed two post qualification fellowships including a laparoscopic colorectal fellowship in Yorkshire and subsequently an advanced rectal cancer fellowship at the Karolinska University hospital in Stockholm, Sweden.
I was previously elected President of the Dukes’ Club and was a member of council of the Association of Coloproctology of Great Britain and Ireland for the duration of this term.
I am actively involved in audit and research locally and also at a national level recruiting patients to multiple trials.
