Clinical Interests

I have a specialist interest in upper GI surgery including laparoscopic cholecystectomy, anti-reflux surgery and repair of hiatal hernias. I offer a full range of operative techniques for repair of abdominal wall hernias including laparoscopic inguinal hernia repair (TEP). I am a specialist in the surgical management of soft tissue sarcomas, neuroendocrine tumours (NETs) and gastrointestinal tumours (GIST). As part of my work as a sarcoma surgeon I see a lot of patients with lumps and bumps including lipomas.
