Experience and Qualifications

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.
