He has an extensive library of publications and continues to present nationally and internationally as well as teaching surgical procedures in other countries.

For appointments regarding general surgical problems including abdominal and groin hernias, bowel disease and screening, a GP referral letter is preferred. A consultation with your GP is not always necessary to obtain this.

For second opinions regarding potential bowel surgery or abdominal wall reconstruction an assessment may be carried out without a GP letter. However, for a fully informative discussion, consent from your GP and results of radiological and pathological investigations considerably improve the accuracy of the discussion.
