About Me

I was educated at Oswestry School and trained in medicine at  St Thomas’s Hospital in London.

I then trained in general surgery in North West London. During training I developed a particular interest in colorectal surgery. I spent some time performing clinical research at St Mark’s Hospital ( as specialist colorectal hospital in London). This research consisted of evaluating new minimally invasive and pharmacological treatments for anal problems.

I completed surgical training and moved to Shropshire in 2005, when I was appointed as Consultant Colorectal Surgeon at the Royal Shrewsbury Hospital and the Princess Royal Hospital Telford. I have a clinical practice across the breadth of colorectal surgery including colonoscopy, surgery for piles, anal fissure, pilonidal sinus, laparoscopic (keyhole) bowel surgery, surgery for bowel cancer, Crohn’s and colitis. I am a JAG accredited colonoscopy trainer.  I also continue to provide emergency general surgery services for the local population.

I run a specialist private Piles Clinic at the Nuffield Health Shrewsbury Hospital. The aim of Piles Clinic is to offer patients high quality, minimally invasive treatment for haemorrhoids and other anal problems.

I am a member of the Association of Coloproctology, the Association of Surgeons and the International Society of Surgery.

Colorectal cancer

Colorectal cancer is one of the commonest cancers in the UK. Colorectal cancer usually causes rectal bleeding, a change in bowel habit or anaemia. About a quarter of people present to hospital as an emergency with a blocked or burst bowel. The best treatment for colorectal cancer is an operation to remove part of the colon or rectum with the tumour. Often this can be done with keyhole surgery. Some people will also need to have chemotherapy after the operation.

Anal fissure

An anal fissure is a small spilt in the skin of the bottom. This can be really painful and often causes some bleeding. An anal fissure is usually diagnosed in the clinic. An anal fissure will often be treated with special creams in the first instance. If that does not work then surgery may be considered.

Careful handling of the vowel and the of laparoscopic techniques can reduce but not eliminate the risk adhesions. Films such as Seprafilm and anti-adhesion solutions gave not been as successful as hoped fir.

Surgery is usually not needed for adhesions unless there are complications of the adhesions. Typically these will be bowel obstruction or problems with fertility. The real problem is that further surgery will cause more adhesions so may make the problem worse. Surgery for adhesions in patients with pain alone is rarely helpful.

It depends why you had the ileostomy and what other surgery was done at the same time. The best approach would be to discuss this with the surgeon who did the orginal operation.
