Consultant Plastic & Reconstructive Surgeon
GMC No 4101668
I graduated a a doctor from the University of London (MB BS) in 1994, having completed a BSc (Honours) degree in Zoology at King’s College, University of London prior to this.
My specialist training in plastic & reconstructive surgery started in 1998, working in London, Wales & Scotland. I obtained an MSc (Distinction) in Surgical Science from University College London in 2000 and I completed my plastic surgery training with subspecialty microsurgical fellowships at the Royal Marsden Hospital & St Thomas’ Hospital in London.
I have been on the GMC register for plastic surgery since 2006, being awarded the FRCS (Plast) at that time, and have worked as a consultant plastic & reconstructive surgeon at Addenbrooke’s Hospital in Cambridge since 2007.
Since 2009, I have been the plastic surgery lead for skin cancer for Cambridgeshire, based at Addenbrooke’s Hospital, and have a specialist research interest in both melanoma & non-melanoma skin cancer, recruiting to regional and international skin cancer trials.
I set up the regional sentinel lymph node biopsy service for malignant melanoma in 2009 at Addenbrooke’s Hospital, and since then have helped to establish the metastatic melanoma multidisciplinary weekly meeting and more recently introduced the technique of electrochemotherapy for management of advanced skin cancer metastases.
My reconstructive surgical practice also encompasses complex reconstruction following cancer resection & major trauma. I regularly undertake combined cases with other surgical specialities at Addenbrooke’s Hospital including cases with the maxillofacial, ENT, skull base, neurosurgery, gynae-oncology, colorectal, urology, breast, orthopaedic and dermatology (Moh’s surgery) teams.
