I learnt colonoscopy utilising Japanese techniques of minimal discomfort over 15 years ago Recognition of skills is reflected in being an accredited bowel cancer screener and involvement in assessing consultants who are attempting to meet these colonoscopy standards.
I established Sheffield as a leading regional centre for treatment of faecal incontinence and constipation introducing many new techniques including scaral nerve stimulation, laparoscopic ventral rectopexy, STARR, stapled haemorrhoidectomy, tibial neuromodulation, and repair for obstetric injury. I run a very large practice for these problems receiving referrals from around the region and regularly lecture nationally, educating other consultants about these techniques.
I am registered with the British Haemorrhoid Centre as a regional expert in the HALO procedure and am involved in training other consultants.
I have an interest in inflammatory bowel disease, running joint clinics and ward rounds with gastroenterologists and regularly offering minimal access surgery for Crohn’s disease and Ulcerative Colitis. I carry out pouch procedures, offering a procedure that avoids the need for a stoma.
I carry out bowel cancer procedures utilising laparoscopic techniques allowing enhanced recovery and rapid return to normal activities.
I offer minimal access and laparoscopic hernia procedures. For inguinal hernia operations I follow the principles of the British Hernia Centre, offering small incision local anaesthetic surgery allowing safe and effective repair with rapid discharge and recovery.
I carry out all the latest procedures for anal fissure and fistula including anal fistula plugs, Botox injection, pilonidal surgery, advancement flaps and pruritis ani surgery, all with same day discharge.
