  • Other Professional Details:
    My higher surgical training in plastic surgery was undertook across Bristol, Plymouth and Exeter before I completed a nationally appointed advanced Training Interface Group (TIG) fellowship in hand surgery at the Pulvertaft Hand Centre in Derby.

  • Special Interests:
    I deliver care for patients requiring treatment for elective and emergency hand surgery, surgical treatment for skin cancers, major trauma extremity reconstruction and general plastic surgery. I have a specialist interest in the surgical reanimation of the upper limb to help restore function following upper limb nerve injuries and upper limb spasticity in both adults and children.
    I am a member of the skin cancer MDT, hand surgery MDT and abdominal wall reconstruction MDT. Furthermore, I am in the process of setting up a MDT for upper limb spasticity. I work collaboratively with colleagues from other specialties at UHCW, particularly the orthopaedic, colorectal and gynaecology surgeons, where I carry out reconstructions for defects of the limbs, perineum and abdominal wall.
