I am a Consultant General and Hepatobiliary Surgeon based in the Mater Hospital, Belfast, since 2006. My higher surgical training was in Northern Ireland. During that period of time I obtained a Doctor of Philosophy (PhD) with the Queen’s University of Belfast investigating the pathophysiology and modulation of Obstructive Jaundice. My sub specialist HPB training was as a HPB/ Transplant Fellow in the Hepatobiliary and Pancreatic Unit/ Scottish Liver Transplant Unit at Edinburgh Royal Infirmary.
I am a member of a number of distinguished societies and associations which include, The Royal College of Surgeons in Ireland, Royal College of Surgeons of England, Fellowship of Association of Surgeons of Great Britain and Ireland, Council Member of the Association of Upper Gastrointestinal Surgeons (of Great Britain and Ireland) and member of the IHPBA (International Hepatobiliary Association). I am currently the President Elect of the GBIHPBA (Great Britain and Ireland HPB Association).
In addition to my clinical practice within the NHS, I am regularly involved in the teaching of undergraduate and post graduate medical students and trainees. I am a Course Director for ATLS and CcRISP courses in Northern Ireland. I sat on the Steering Committee for the 3rd Edition of CcRISP at the Royal College of Surgeons of England.
Within the NHS, I treat patients for a number of conditions relating to the liver, stomach, pancreas, gallbladder and bowel. This involves consultation, diagnostic work up, treatment and follow up. I have a particular interest in major liver surgery (open or laparoscopic )for colorectal liver metastases, cholangiocarcinoma or hepatoma. My other major interest is research and surgery in pancreatic cancer.
