He has published extensively along with his research, with 78 publications to date, both peer-reviewed and abstract. He regularly presents papers at both national and international conferences.
What are the most common symptoms your patients present when they consult with you?
It depends on whether it's a malignant problem or a benign problem. If it's benign, they tend to present with pain, which can be epigastric pain or right upper quadrant pain. For the majority of people, that's straightforward biliary colic.
When it gets more complicated, they can actually present with things like obstructive jaundice, so they can have pain and change colour and changed colour in their urine and stool. They can develop pancreatitis, which can be potentially quite a scary and severe thing. That's the benign disease.
When it comes to the malignant disease, they tend not to have pain at all. If it's a malignant pancreas tumour or liver tumour or a sarcoma, they tend to almost globally say, "but I feel well, doctor," and something else has alerted them to it.
For example, an incidental finding, if they've gone to see another doctor and they found a big lump or if they’ve suddenly gone yellow, but this time with no pain at all, so those are the more common ways people present.
What are the treatments or procedures that you're able to offer patients?
I can offer people a wide range of complex or straightforward hepatobiliary procedures and general surgery procedures and sarcoma procedures.
If it's straightforward procedures, then I think like cholecystectomy, laparoscopic cholecystectomy which is keyhole, laparoscopic bile duct explorations, among others.
A bit more complicated procedures would be straightforward hernias or more complicated hernia repairs; more complicated hepatobiliary, things like bile duct reconstructions, if they've got benign strictures; operations on the pancreas, such as the Frey's procedure, if they've got chronic pancreatitis and they've got a lot of calcium.
Then, for cancers, operations on the pancreas, like Whipple procedure or a distal pancreatectomy; and then, liver resection, either major or a more sparing liver resection. I do that either open or keyhole.
When it comes to sarcoma, sarcomas are tumours that tend to involve a lot of organs. We call those multi-visceral resections, and they could involve removing a bit of liver, a bit of pancreas, chest wall, kidney, colon, all in one procedure.
I do these – from the very straightforward to the very complicated.
What is your special area of interest?
Hepatobiliary surgery and sarcoma. They go hand-in-hand. My training has been in both of those, but I also trained as a liver transplant surgeon, although I don't do that now. Again, that's the thing that's complementary to all of that.
What charities are you affiliated with?
I'm not at the moment affiliated with any charities.
