I am a fully trained Plastic Surgeon in the Northeast of England on the GMC Plastic Surgery Specialist Register. I work as a Substantive Consultant in the University Hospital of North Durham specialising in Skin Cancer, Head & Neck Reconstruction, Facial Palsy and all aspects of general Plastic surgery including breast, trunk and abdominal surgery. I have over 12 years of experience in all aspects of Plastic & Aesthetic Surgery and I am the current Skin Cancer Lead for the Trust.
I qualified from the Royal Free & University Hospital Medical School, London in 2002 gaining an additional BSc in Immunology and Cell Pathology from University College London with First Class Honours. I subsequently trained in the world renowned centre of Plastic Surgery in Chelmsford and in large Teaching Hospitals such as St George’s, London and Newcastle. During this time I gained Membership of the Royal College of Surgeons of England, a Masters in Wound Healing from Cardiff University and gained my final Fellowship of the Royal College of Surgeons of England in Plastic Surgery in 2016. My higher surgical fellowship was as the top ranking Interface Trainee for Head and Neck Surgical Oncology at Guy’s & St Thomas’, London. During this year I gained invaluable cosmetic training in the prestigious London Bridge, and Weymouth Street Hospitals. I have developed a well-established Cosmetic Injectables Practice working with the Sk:n Clinic group in London - East Finchlay and Hampstead, and at James Cook University Hospital in the Northeast.
I regularly attend training sessions and teach on a number of Northern Deanery Plastic Surgery Courses. I have published widely with 20 peer review publications, and over 40 presentations across the UK, Europe and the USA. My aim is to provide an expert service with attention to detail that delivers natural and predictable outcomes for all my patients.
