I am a Consultant Plastic Surgeon working in the NHS and in private practice in central and west London. I qualified as a doctor from Barts, London, in 1989. In 1993 I became a Fellow of the Royal College of Surgeons of England, and passed the specialist examination in plastic surgery (FRCS(Plast)) in 2000. My plastic surgery training was in the UK and in Sydney, Australia. I was awarded a Fulbright Scholarship to undertake research into aspects of wound healing at Harvard Medical School / Massachussetts General Hospital, Boston, USA (1994-5). I completed a fellowship (advanced training) in cosmetic surgery (London) with Mr Dai Davies, and I also worked in Mr Jan Stanek's pracice in Harley Street and Wimpole Street.
I was appointed as a Consultant Plastic Surgeon (locum) in Bristol in 2002, and in 2003 was appointed as Consultant Plastic Surgeon and Hand Surgeon at Chelsea and Westminster Hospital, London. Since 2007 I have been Lead for Plastic Surgery at Chelsea and Westminster Hospital (head of department). I am the visiting Consultant Plastic Surgeon at West Middlesex University Hospital, Isleworth.
My private practice is based at the Chelsea Outpatient Centre in central London, and I also see patients at a number of other central and west London locations including the Wellington Hospital (St Johns Wood), the BMI Syon Clinic, Isleworth and the New Victoria Hospital, Kingston.
In addition to being a specialist in Plastic Surgery and Cosmetic Surgery, I am also a trained Hand Surgeon (see my hand surgery web site for additional information).
As an experienced reconstructive surgeon, I treat many patients with skin cancers such as rodent ulcers (BCCs) and melanoma, particularly lesions on the face where the cosmetic result is so important.
I am also expert in the treatment of scars and removal of skin lesions for cosmetic reasons.
I offer the full range of cosmetic surgery procedures. I have particular expertise with minimally invasive treatments such as botulinum toxin, fillers and local anaesthetic smaller surgical procedures.
