I have, since 2001, been the Endocrine and Thyroid surgeon at the Chelsea and Westminster Hospital, a central London hospital founded in 1719. The endocrine department includes 5 adult and 2 paediatric endocrinologists and one surgeon, treating a wide variety of conditions of the thyroid, parathyroid and adrenal. I qualified as a doctor in Cambridge and passed my USA medical exams at the same time, I have worked in Oxford, France and the USA in addition to the extensive training in London. I sat and passed the first specialist exit exam in Endocrine Surgery in the UK and have been dedicated to the speciality since. I did a research period at the Institute of Cancer Research/Royal Marsden Hospital related to antibody directed treatment of cancer which lead to the awarding of a doctorate of medicine in Cambridge in 1999. I am interested in minimal access surgery and the cosmetic implications of surgery.
