Professional profile/background:

I graduated from the University of Bristol and have completed most of my surgical training in Bristol and the south-west of England. I spent six months at the University of Toronto, Canada on an International Colorectal Fellowship, where I acquired specialist training in surgery for complex inflammatory bowel disease, colonoscopy and laparoscopic surgery.  I also spent one year teaching anatomy at the University of Cambridge.

My major interests include colorectal surgery, colonoscopy and bowel cancer screening.  I have particular expertise in the management of inflammatory bowel disease, colorectal cancer, colonoscopy and benign anorectal conditions. I am involved in ongoing research within the fields of colorectal cancer and inflammatory bowel disease.
