I qualified in medicine in 1989 and trained mainly in Birmingham and Cambridge and completed my training in breast, oncoplasty, endocrine and general surgery and took up the post of Consultant Surgeon in the University Hospital of North Durham in 2005.
In this post I deal with all aspects of general surgery, laparoscopic surgery, upper and lower GI, endoscopic surgery, as well as breast and endocrine surgery. I have also been trained in oncoplastic surgery dealing with breast reconstruction and cosmesis. I have started parathyroid surgery in the University Hospital of North Durham as it was not previously available within this region. I specialise in focused, minimally invasive parathyroid surgery on a day-case or overnight stay basis. I also specialise in laparoscopic hernia repair.
