 CV and interests   



 (skin cancer)





I am a Consultant Plastic Surgeon at Leeds Teaching Hospitals NHS Trust.



My special interests are the treatment of malignant melanoma (skin cancer) and surgery for hand injuries.


I also undertake general plastic surgery, including being "on call" at Leeds General Infirmary.




Melanoma: I am a core member of the Melanoma Specialist Skin Multi-Disciplinary Team (SSMDT).

                         I undertake surgery for all stages of malignant melanoma (I-IV), including sentinel node biopsy, block dissections,

                          and surgery for advanced local disease.

                         Surgery for melanoma takes place at Leeds General Infirmary.

                         I hold multi-specialty melanoma clinics at St James's Hospital each Thursday and alternate Wednesdays.

                         I also participate in research, education, audit, peer review, and guideline development, both nationally

                           and as part of Yorksire Cancer Network.


Hand surgery: I have a particular interest in trauma and post-trauma reconstruction, as well as general hand surgery.

                                 I have a hand trauma clinic for newly injured patients each Tuesday morning at Leeds General Infirmary.

                                 Follow-up  for hand trauma patients takes place on Tuesday afternoons at Leeds General Infirmary.

                                 I have operating sessions for hand surgery at Leeds General Infirmary.
