He was appointed as Consultant General and Colorectal Surgeon at the Manchester Royal Infirmary in 2010 and has been developing his practice since then. Following his appointment he has passed the rigorous assessment required to perform colonoscopy as part of the national Bowel Cancer Screening Programme and is actively involved in screening the large cohort of family history patients known to the regional genetics service. He has also developed a tertiary referral practice for the endoscopic management of large or complex colonic polyps. In addition he has undergone specific training in laparoscopic (keyhole) surgery for bowel cancer, something that he routinely offers his patients within the National Health Service.
His other clinical interests include the management of complex pilonidal sinus, benign anorectal conditions (haemorrhoids/ piles, fissures and fistulas) and hernias.
