With a Grandfather and Father both in the Surgical field I was born into a medical family and knew from a very young age that he wanted to pursue a surgical career. Whilst at Guys Hospital I came across the field of Plastic Surgery and was fascinated by the possibilities of the specialty. After a period of training in General Surgery to hone basic surgical skills I returned to Plastic Surgery and was appointed to the London Plastic Surgery Rotation. I was appointed as a Consultant at the world renowned Queen Victoria Hospital and specialised in reconstruction of difficult defects from cancer and trauma of the face, breast, abdomen and perineum.
Eventually the volume of my work became overwhelming and the limitations of the NHS became a constant frustration, so I resigned my post to regain control over the quality of service that I could provide, in a personal way and to my own high standard.
I have published extensively, written book chapters and edited papers for the main journals of Plastic Surgery. I still teach Aesthetic Surgery to trainees at the training centre in East Grinstead, and have taught for the Royal College of Surgeons in the past. I travel extensively to check that my practice is up to date and so I can discuss techniques and cases with the "best of the best" internationally. I still have the same passion for my specialty as the first day that I was exposed to the life improvements that could be achieved with the careful and safe use of advanced surgical techniques and anaesthesia.
My broad training has now been carefully refined to provide my patients the best possible results in all aspects of Aesthetic Surgery, with an emphasis on a safe, relaxed and personal service.
