Special Interests I specialise in surgery for diseases of the oesophagus and stomach (often referred to as Upper Gastrointestinal Surgery or Upper GI Surgery or Foregut Surgery). There are three areas of sub-specialisation in this area: (1) surgery for obesity and related diseases such as diabetes (Bariatric & Metabolic Surgery); (2) surgery for cancer of the oesophagus and stomach (Surgical Oncology) and (3) surgery for benign disorders, such as gastro-oesophageal reflux disease, hiatus hernia, achalasia cardia and gastroparesis. Most upper gastrointestinal operations are done best by laparoscopic surgery (also called minimally invasive surgery or minimal access surgery). I have extensive experience and expertise in all areas of upper GI surgery (described above) as well as in laparoscopic surgery.
