I am a Consultant Colorectal and General Surgeon with an interest in the surgical management of inflammatory bowel disease (Crohn’s disease and ulcerative colitis) and the management of colorectal cancer. I use laparoscopic (keyhole) surgical techniques and enhanced recovery protocols to help ensure the best possible outcomes for my patients. I undertake my NHS work at Worcestershire Acute Hospitals NHS Trust and my private practice at The Droitwich Spa Hospital and Spire South Bank Hospital. I am currently the Clinical Director for Endoscopy at Worcestershire Acute Hospitals NHS Trust. I am also the Clinical Lead for Endoscopy at The Droitwich Spa Hospital. I also represent General Surgery on the Medical Advisory Committee’s at both The Droitwich Spa Hospital and Spire South Bank Hospital.
I offer a range of colorectal procedures, including colonoscopy and sigmoidoscopy, and provide specialist advice and surgery for patients with inflammatory bowel disease who may need surgery as part of their treatment.
In addition, I can offer a range of general surgical procedures, including hernia repairs.
Most procedures can be offered on a daycare basis. Further information about the services I offer can be found here. I am registered with most major private health insurance companies and any fees I charge are in line with your insurance companies’ Schedule of Fees. The providers I am registered with are shown here.
I qualified from King’s College School of Medicine and Dentistry and completed my House Jobs and Basic Surgical Training in the North West Thames region of the London Deanery. I undertook a research degree under the supervision of Professor Paris Tekkis and Professor John Nicholls at Imperial College London looking at outcomes after ileal pouch surgery. It was during this period that I helped establish the UK National Ileal Pouch Registry, which is now being used in centres across Europe.
My higher surgical training was undertaken in the Oxford Deanery and included time in the inflammatory bowel disease surgical unit at Oxford University Hospitals NHS Trust. I subsequently became the Senior Clinical Fellow in IBD Surgery in Oxford.
I have undertaken an international fellowship, spending a year as the University of Toronto’s Clinical Fellow in Colorectal Surgery. During this period I worked at Mount Sinai Hospital gaining further experience in complex IBD surgery. During this time I also gained further in the management of colorectal cancer. Part of my fellowship year was spent at St Michael’s Hospital where the colorectal practice covered all aspects of colorectal surgery.
I have published a number of peer reviewed papers, book chapters and reports as well as presented at numerous national and international meetings.
