all about me

I am a Consultant Hepatobiliary and General Surgeon and Associate Professor of Surgery based at Liverpool University Hospitals where I specialise in diseases of the gallbladder and liver. As a member of the Liverpool Hepatobiliary Unit, I perform over 60 major open and laparoscopic (keyhole) liver resections for cancer each year as well as over 150 laparoscopic gallbladder operations (cholecystectomy).

I have extensive experience in the investigation and management of hernias, including groin, incisional and abdominal wall hernias. I perform open and laparoscopic repairs as part of my practice.


I look after patients with a wide variety of liver and gallbladder conditions, including gallstone disease, liver cysts and cancers. I also help patients with abdominal tumours called sarcomas.

I see patients referred by their GPs, as well as specialist referrals from other surgeons across the region.
