I commenced training in plastic surgery in 1987 in the UK, and
trained in large units in London, Norwich and Edinburgh,
culminating in a two year senior registrar post in the prestigious
Canniesburn unit in Glasgow. My particular interests lie in hand
surgery, having been the first surgeon to develop endoscopic carpal
tunnel surgery in the UK. I also practice microsurgery, and have
interests in ear reconstruction and lower limb reconstruction.

ever and they were brilliant with me and I can't thank them enough
- could you please pass on my sincere thanks.'
