I graduated from University of Leicester Medical School in 2001. I undertook most my surgical training in Leicester and then spent 1 year each in Adelaide and Oxford undertaking prestigious fellowships. I work full time at the Leicester General Hospital as a consultant liver, pancreas and gallbladder surgeon.

I have published widely and presented at national and international meetings along with authoring book chapters. My aim is to provide expert surgical care to my patients whilst taking a holistic approach to their illness.
