I have had my basic and higher surgical training in Manchester. I worked in the Intestinal failure unit in Hope hospital as a part of my training. I went to the Mayo clinic and Cleveland clinics in the US on two separate scholarships as an observer. I work as a General/ Colorectal consultant for the Calderdale and Huddersfield NHS Trust.
I am a laparoscopic enthusiast and perform colonic, rectal and ileo anal pouch surgery fully laparoscopically. I am the lead for pelvic floor surgery and the clinical lead for colorectal cancer MDT in our trust.
I have published and presented widely in the field of colorectal surgery and hernia surgery. I am on the editorial board of various journals.
