     I am a Consultant General and Upper GI Surgeon with a
    special interest in Oesophagus and Stomach cancer, Gastroesophageal Reflux
    Disease, Hiatus Hernia, Bariatric surgery, Gall Stones and keyhole Hernia

    I have been a consultant surgeon for over 20 years,
    initially at the Pennine Trust and since 2010 at the Salford Royal Foundation
    Trust. At the Salford Royal Hospital, I work in the Department of Upper GI Surgery
    which is one of the largest Upper GI Surgical Unit in the country.  

    I belief in lifelong learning and over the years I have
    acquired extensive expertise and experience in my field of interest. I use all
    my knowledge and skill to provide a best possible care to my patients.  

    Every patient is an individual with personal needs and requirements.
    When I am recommending a treatment to my patient, I always make sure that I
    have given a careful consideration to everything which may be important. I am
    very pleased that I have thousands of happy patients who I have had the privilege
    to treat over the years. 

    I have a research interest in oesophagogastric cancer, Barrett’s
    oesophagus and bariatric surgery.  

    I am a fellow of the Royal College of Surgeons of England
    and also member of the Association of Upper GI Surgeons of Great Britten and Ireland
    (AUGIS), Association of Laparoscopic Surgeons of Great Britten (ALGGBI) and
    Ireland, British Obesity & Metabolic Surgery Society (BOMSS)and Manchester
