EDUCATION

LANGUAGES

English


I trained in London at Great Ormond street and Chelsea & Westminster hospitals. I was Associate Professor in the academic unit in Hong Kong and am currently Clinical Lead for Paediatric surgical services at The Chelsea Children’s Hospital and the Royal Brompton Hospital. This involved extensive exposure to minimal access surgery, resulting in my specialisation in both laparoscopic (keyhole) and open surgical procedures for neonates and children. The operations I commonly provide privately can usually be done as day case surgery, allowing children to return home as soon as possible. These include circumcision and foreskin surgery, hernia repairs, undescended testes and hydrocele repairs. My practice also includes providing surgery for more complex procedures for gastro-oesophageal reflux such as Nissen's fundoplication. I was one of the first general paediatric surgeons in the UK to use a robot. I have an interest in training paediatric surgeons and have developed and run courses both in the simulation of operations as well as minimal access surgical techniques. I am board member on the national training committee for the UK and Ireland. I have been awarded 9 clinical Excellence awards during my 12 years as consultant and am currently President-elect for the British Association of Paediatric Endoscopic Surgeon. I have also published over 40 articles and 5 book chapters.
