Schooled in Llanelli, I studied medicine at St Georges’ Hospital Medical School London. I developed an interest in cardiothoracic surgery whilst completing my general surgical training in Brisbane Australia.
In the UK my training continued at Harefield, and then I completed a research MD at The Hatter Institute part of University College, London.
I completed my Cardiothoracic training in the northern rotation between The Freeman Hospital Newcastle and The James Cook University Hospital Middlesbrough. This was finished off with a fellowship at St Vincents Hospital Sydney prior to my consultant appointment at the Lancashire Cardiothoracic Centre in Blackpool.
Since appointment as a consultant I have built one of the largest practices in the UK with excellent outcomes.
My interests include coronary artery revascularisation, minimally invasive cardiac surgery and atrial fibrillation surgery. I routinely perform minimally invasive aortic valve procedures including sutureless valves, trans-apical and percutaneous TAVI. I have been granted fellowship of the International Society of Minimally Invasive Cardiothoracic Surgery.
Regionally I have an excellent reputation for training advanced trainees in cardiac surgical skills. I am developing a national presence as the Society of Cardiothoracic Surgeons of Great Britain and Ireland’s representative to the College of the Society of Clinical Perfusion Scientists reporting to the executive committee.
