- General surgery
Upon completing medical school in Sheffield in 2000, my early surgical training was completed in South Yorkshire following which I moved to Merseyside to complete my higher surgical training. During this period I also completed a 2 year period of research into colorectal cancer towards my MD thesis. I have recently been appointed as a Consultant in General and Colorectal Surgery at Wrexham Maelor Hospital, with a subspecialty interest in Laparoscopic Colorectal Surgery. Prior to commencing this position, I completed a 6-month Laparoscopic fellowship working with Professor Pete Sagar at St James Hospital in Leeds. This training allowed me to extend my skills with advanced laparoscopic colorectal procedures. I have experienced the breadth of subspecialty colorectal practice, training in both tertiary referral and district general units. I manage both elective and emergency general surgical conditions. My expertise is within all aspects of gastrointestinal disease, but in particular, colorectal cancer, inflammatory bowel disease, incontinence and benign proctology including fistula and fissure. I am also trained in most aspects of general surgery such as abdominal wall hernia and gallstones.
