My first exposure and interest in Plastic surgery was sparked whilst working as a junior doctor in the plastic surgery and burns unit in Brisbane, Australia. The Bali bombings occurred during this time, with an unprecedented number of burns patients admitted to the burns unit for reconstruction and rehabilitation.

PLASTIC SURGEON
FRCS (Plast)

-Having been born and brought up in Bury St. Edmunds, Suffolk, I chose to return to East Anglia to complete my basic surgical training. I worked in the plastic surgery units of both Addenbrookes hospital in Cambridge, and then the Norfolk and Norwich hospital.

I was awarded a much coveted plastic surgery training position in London, rotating through the following hospitals:

– Guys and St. Thomas’ hospital
– St Georges hospital, Tooting
– The Chelsea and Westminster hospital
– The Queen Victoria Hospital, East Grinstead (the birth-place of modern plastic surgery)

I have particular interest and experience in the following:

– Skin cancer surgery: extensive experience throughout my training, but especially whilst working for Prof Powell (UK Reader for skin cancer) at St Georges hospital, during which time I performed research and published work on melanoma for which I won the RSM UK Surgical trainee of the year 2010 (known also as the Norman Tanner Prize and Glaxo medal).

– Breast Reconstruction: my training in this important field was consolidated at the Queen Victoria hospital in East Grinstead (a centre of excellence in breast reconstruction) where I performed all aspects of breast reconstruction, including liposculpture, implant based, pedicled and free flap reconstructions.
– Body contouring surgery: the increase in bariatric surgery, has resulted in increased demand for post massive weight loss body contouring. 

-I spent 6 months working for one of the only surgeons in the UK (Mr. Soldin- St Georges hospital) whose NHS practice is predominantly body contouring surgery. I  co-authorod chapters on body contouring with Mr Soldin for the Oxford Textbook of Plastic Surgery.
– Hand and Wrist surgery: Hand trauma is a major component of plastic surgery training. However, over the last two years of my training, I accumulated extensive experience in elective hand and wrist surgery through working in world-renown specialist hand centres.

– I was awarded scholarships from both the British (BSSH) and European (FESSH) hand societies for a 4 month fellowship in the Martin Singer Hand Unit at the Groote Schuur hospital in Cape Town, where I had the unique opportunity to observe and carry out reconstructions of severely injured hands.

– Following this I undertook a 6 month Congenital Hand fellowship at Great Ormond Street Hospital, where I was involved in the full range of paediatric hand surgery.

– I completed my training with a 12-month interface hand fellowship at the Pulvertaft hand unit in Derby. This unit offers all aspects of upper limb surgery, however it is recognized worldwide as a centre of excellence and innovation in wrist surgery.

– I am confident in my abilities to manage and treat the full spectrum of adult and children’s hand and wrist pathologies. Nine of my 23 publications have been specifically related to surgery of the hand, and I have co-authored chapters on Rarer upper limb compression syndromes and on Hand Infections for a Hand Surgery textbook published by Churchill Livingstone.
