I am a Consultant Plastic and Reconstructive Surgeon at Addenbrooke’s Hospital in Cambridge. I attended Medical school at the University of London, graduating with distinctions. At medical school, I developed my interest in surgery and spent time at the prestigious Johns Hopkins Hospital in Baltimore, USA studying surgery.
I qualified as a surgeon in 2002 from the Royal College of Surgeons and went on to specialise in Plastic and Reconstructive surgery. I spent my specialist registrar training in and around the London area at some of the most prestigious plastic surgery units in the country including St Thomas hospital, The Queen Victoria hospital, East Grinstead, Charing Cross Hospital and Great Ormond street Hospital. After achieving my FRCSPlast in 2008, I went onto undertake specialist fellowships in craniofacial surgery and Microsurgery in London. This also enabled me to work with the charity Facing the World both in the UK and Vietnam. I went onto undertake a cosmetic fellowship at the Wellington Hospital in London working with Niall Kirkpatrick and Norman Waterhouse and I was able to consolidate my aesthetic skills at breast, facial and oculoplastic reconstruction further before securing my Consultant job at Cambridge University Hospitals NHS trust in 2010.
Over the last 6 years I have undertaken all types of breast reconstruction for both congenital and cancer patients as well as developing a large skin cancer and facial and oculoplastic practice. I believe that it is important to customise the reconstruction to the patient and to respect patients idea and expectations working together to reach these goals.
