I graduated as a doctor from UCL after which I completed my basic surgical training in England. I also visited and worked in units in Europe and the Middle East. I completed my Plastic surgery training and worked as a consultant in New Zealand, the country where many of the founding fathers of Plastic surgery came from. I then came back to the UK and undertook fellowships in breast, aesthetic, paediatric Plastic and congenital hand surgery. Since January 2013 I have been working as a paediatric Plastic surgeon with an interest in Hand and Upper limb surgery. This includes dealing with trauma patients and also patients with congenital hand, obstetric brachial plexus and limb vascular anomalies. Plastic and Hand Surgery is basically reconstruction, often using tissues from local or distant sites, which needs a surgeon to be an expert in anatomy. Over the last 20 years I have been fortunate enough to have been able to operate on almost every part of the body. I have taught anatomy through lectures and small group sessions. I have carried out lab based research at UCL and Manchester University and also clinical research in New Zealand and the UK in both Anatomy and Plastic surgery fields. I enjoy teaching, training and assessing staff at BCH and also on external courses. I am regular contributor to journal clubs, audits and Hand meetings.
