My Background

I became a plastic surgeon after seeing the dedication and care of burns surgeons at Stoke Mandeville Hospital as a medical student. They opened my eyes to a specialty that covers all areas of the body, has numerous sub-specialist areas, challenging surgical issues and a fundamental philosophy that aims to restore patients to normal function both physically and psychologically.

Having qualified as a doctor from King’s College Hospital I undertook my general surgical training in hospitals throughout the South East.

My specialist plastic surgery training started at Great Ormond Street Hospital followed by posts at Queen Mary’s Hospital, Roehampton and Queen Victoria Hospital, East Grinstead.

I then completed an MSc in Surgical Science at University College London followed by further posts in higher plastic surgery training at St. George’s Hospital, Chelsea & Westminster Hospital, St Thomas’ Hospital, Queen Victoria Hospital and St Andrew’s Centre for Plastic Surgery & Burns. I have completed a specialist fellowship in burns surgery. 

I have achieved the specialist FRCS (Plast) qualification gaining specialist skills in all areas of plastic and cosmetic surgery.

I am on the specialist register of plastic surgery of the GMC, working in East Grinstead and Gatwick. My 25 years in the field of plastic, cosmetic and reconstructive surgery have given me a broad experience augmented by thorough training in all its sub-specialities.
