My philosophy in treating patients is simple – I aim to treat them, as I would like to be treated! I explain to patients in clear and simple language, usually with the help of diagram, and offer them treatments that are effective, durable and usually delivered in one session.I have been a Consultant Vascular Surgeon for nearly 15 years.
I introduced the one-stop assessment clinic for varicose veins and the minimally-invasive, local anaesthetic management of varicose veins, to the wider population of the South of River Mersey, over 12 years ago. I routinely offer a one-session treatment for even complicated varicose veins.
I do not adopt new techniques as soon as they are introduced as I have seen some of these new techniques fade away as quickly as they were seen, with patients faring a bit worse off subsequently. However, once there is clear evidence that a technique is effective, I include them in the range of methods that I offer to patients.
I have been the Clinical Lead for Vascular Surgery on the Wirral and was also the Clinical Director for Vascular Surgery for the South Mersey Arterial Centre. I have introduced numerous advances in the field of Vascular Access surgery (surgery for patients with severe kidney failure requiring dialysis) and I am the Lead for this service. I have presented nationally and internationally in this field.
I am also a trained Coach and an Appraiser of colleagues.
I enjoy life outside medicine. I have represented my University in Cricket, being a wicket-keeper and an opening batsman. I had to reluctantly accept that my reflexes are not as good as they had been, evidenced by the scars and injuries to the fingers! I have now taken to cycling and has been forced to embrace the MAMIL (Middle Age Men InLyrca) tag! I am a keen photographer and enjoy manipulating the images in Lightroom. I am also a keen woodworker and hide away in the garage when time permits. All my fingers are intact – so far!
