Professional profile/background:

Having trained in Oxford University I undertook my basic surgical training in the South of England. I completed my adult cardiac surgical training at the Oxford Heart Centre and Papworth Hospital in 1995 then went to San Francisco to undertake a specialised congenital period of training, initially for one year. After this year I was invited to stay on for a year of research, but during this time a permanent position became available for an Assistant Professor and I was appointed to this permanent position in 1997. In 1999 I came back to UK to take up a post in Bristol where I am now the senior surgeon.

My key clinical interests are in neonatal cardiac surgery, management of patients with hypoplastic left heart syndrome, adult congenital cardiac surgery, and difficult pacing problems. I undertook a period of research during which I received the degree of DM researching into prospects for fetal cardiac surgery. My research interests now are the physiology of single ventricle circulations, brain injury associated with cardiac surgery, and the use of new and novel technology in the management of patients with congenital cardiac disease. I have received numerous grants to support this work including substantial grants from the NIH (USA) studying applications of laser tissue welding techniques.
