CV and interests
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.
