I am a Consultant Paediatric Surgeon and Urologist. I trained at Nottingham and the prestigious Hospital for Sick Children, Great Ormond Street. My research thesis was on ?DNA ? ploidy in Wilms? tumour? and remains the largest study published on this subject till date.
In l995, I was appointed to the Royal London Hospital as a Consultant Paediatric Surgeon. My special interest is Paediatric Urology and at RLH I am in charge of managing all infants with antenatally diagnosed hydronephrosis. I also do the majority of the hypospadias work at RLH.
In 1995, I had described a new operation of doing pyloromyotomy through the umbilicus, the technique has been published in the European Journal of Paediatric-Surgery, 1998, 8: 81-2, and over 90 cases have been done so far.
On a personal level, I am married and a father of two children. I am addicted to chess, and often spend 1-2 hours every night playing live on the internet. The private practise helps to pay for the burgeoning internet phone bills !
