I have been a consultant vascular surgeon since 2011 and currently working at the South Mersey Arterial Centre at the Countess of Chester Hospital as well as the Warrington and Halton Hospitals.
Throughout my previous training in vascular surgical specialist units, I was exposed to a wide variety and high volume of elective vascular operations. I can perform varicose vein operations (primary & redo) & endovenous foam injection sclerotherapy, laser ablation therapy, radiofrequency ablation therapy, Clarivein sclerotherapy or VenaSeal therapy for venous conditions.
I also manage carotid, aneurysm, peripheral vascular and diabetic foot diseases as well as leg oedema or ulcers. I perform carotid endarterectomy with patchplasty (under local or general anaesthesia), aortic surgery for aneurismal and occlusive disease, local femoral reconstruction, fem-fem cross-over, axillo-femoral bypass, fem-popliteal bypass, fem-distal bypass, fem- or popliteal-pedal bypass, digital and major lower limb amputations. I also perform endovascular stenting for the repair of abdominal aortic aneurysm (EVAR).

I am also a faculty member of the Liverpool & Chester Basic Surgical Skills Courses as well as the Manchester Cadaveric Surgical Skills Courses.
